Kids will have fun making their own garden fairies, especially over summer when plants are in full bloom. Teach them the names of the flowers that you use, discuss the different shades of colour and how plants grow.
Have a go at creating your own mini aquarium in an old jam jar. Its easy to do and the kids will love how the glitter and sea creatures swirl around inside the jar. The aquariums also make great party decorations and party favours for kids to take home instead of a party bag.
Have a go at making your own glue sponge for the kids to use. Homemade glue sponges are super cheap to make and really easy to put together at home. They also last a surprisingly long time and stop you from having sticky glue everywhere! Glue sponges are great to use for your kids arts and crafts projects and can be sealed up ready for use next time.
