With the summer holidays underway and two children to keep entertained, I’m also on the look out for things to do, whether it be days out, trips to the local park, or activities to keep the children occupied at home. When Sainsbury’s offered to send us a selection of their Back to School stationary range including lots of art and craft goodies, I knew that would the perfect way to entertain my two when we are stuck at home or when it’s raining.
Mister B decided to recreate the huge blue and purple jellyfish that we saw lying on the beach. He drew a blue outline and stuck on some googly eyes. Then I helped him add some sparkly purple glitter to make it shine and then he drew some wiggly jellyfish legs!
Miss M then got really creative and wanted to draw one her favourite activities – rock climbing!! She’s only had a go on the man made indoor rock climbing places but would love to one day take part in some outdoor rock climbing. She cut out a purple tissue paper rock and stuck it to the paper. She then created a sparkly purple sun in the corner of the paper. She then drew three little rock climbers, one each side of the cliff and one on top with all bundles of ropes. She gave each person a shiny coloured star sticker for their hard work and to say well done for their excellent rock climbing!
A bundle of craft materials is a great way to get the children to be creative and also to get them sitting down concentrating just like they have to when they go back to school. They also really enjoy it and love showing everyone their finished pieces of art.
Being organised in the mornings is a great way to start the day and keep things calm and smooth running. Sainsbury’s have put together a Back to School list of 9 igenious ways to streamline the kids mornings routine – why not check it out?
We were sent some Sainsburys craft goodies and voucher in return for this post.
