Last week, it was our last Lichfield Mandarin Club lesson of the year and it was my turn again to take the class on crafts. Besides doing crafts, I also incorporated learning to read and write Chinese characters in the lesson. Last year, we had to cancel the lesson due to heavy snow and I decided to re-use the lesson plan that I had in mind.

Earlier this year, I changed my blog direction to food and craft posts. They had been dormant passions of mine and it wasn’t until the regularity of the kids going to school that enabled me to spend more time on these.
The forecast said that we might be getting snow this winter but I am still waiting for that to happen! If it doesn’t happen, why not check out this post on how to create a snowflake party this winter!
I am going to share how I used a wrap and pancake to make snowflake and paper crafts in this post. Also not forgetting some of my lovely blogging friends who shared their snowflake party ideas with me.
Yesterday, we all had such a great NickJrCraftmas party with UKMumstv and Nick Jr on Twitter. It was very manic and I had to reset my laptop once as I was unable to tweet photo. Also I was in Twitter Jail for tweeting too much in a short period of time.
Anyway, we did quite a lot of crafts over the weekend! Firstly, I had used the given reindeer template to cut it out and play Pin the Nose on Rudolph. They were all very close to pinning the nose! Well done to them. If you have notice their eye masks, it is in fact toilet paper! I could not find any blindfold so I used toilet roll to cover the top half of their heads!
A huge welcome to Week 44 of the Tuesday Tutorials Pintorials Pin Party! 23 more sleeps to Christmas! This week I am featuring Christmas wreaths.
Christmas is coming thick and fast and I have a few crafts that I would love to share with you. Thanks to Nick Jr’s Christmas Craft Twitter party for the materials we received and guides to make them.
This coming Monday 1st December, I will be taking part in Nick Jr Christmas Craft Twitter party along with other bloggers to make Christmas crafts and share all the fun ideas from our parties.Join the party on Twitter with me @etspeaksfrom, @NickJrUK and @ukmumstv from 1 pm to 3 pm where there will be some fab prizes to give away. Remember to tweet using #NickJrCraftmas hashtag to win some great prizes and games to take part in, so make sure your laptop, PC or smart device is ready to go as the party starts!
Yesterday, I received a huge box full of #NickJrCraftmas goodies in preparation for the Twitter party. The party box contains eight different types of Christmas crafts to make, two edible craft activities, goodie boxes filled with treats, marshmallow cupcake ingredients, activity sheets and many more! Everything will be revealed soon! Look out for my post-party blog post if you can’t join in with us on Monday.
Recently, Baker Ross sent us their lovely range of Christmas crafts for us to try. There are: hand puppet sewing kits, sequin decoration kits, foam card kits, reindeer cards, owl ceramic trinket boxes, felt star stickers, pudding felt stickers and glitter porcelain & glass paint pens.
Each kit comes in neat individual packs with the items and instructions. The range of crafts supplied above are great for young children. Each kits are very easy to follow and make. Some of the crafts may require adult help.
This Christmas holiday period, Vertbaudet has created a new Christmas activities page to keep children busy in the run up to Christmas. There are 10 different activities – if you run out of ideas, why not have a look at their activities page and get inspired. Create and pin it on Pinterest. Then maybe they could ‘show and tell’ it to their class.
Each of the activities comes as a PDF file that are straightforward to print out. There is an Advent Calendar, Paper Garland, Paper Pompoms, Letters to Santa, Colouring Pictures, Christmas Gift Tags, Woollen Pompoms, Bake Some Biscuits, Christmas Carol and Paper Stars.
