Welcome back to TUESDAY TOTS

Brought to you weekly by Learn with Play at home (that's us), Rainy Day Mum,
and One Perfect Day



This week we are showcasing

"10 cool things to make with kids"

Making things with kids isn't always about the end result. There is so much to be gained from a bit of DIY with children. From learning concepts of recycling to language, maths, creativity and so much more. The process is almost always enjoyed more than the end result, but you'll find with many of these 10 ideas, (which came from last weeks Tuesday Tots linkup) you finish up with something really cool at the end. Bonus!


1. Make these awesome DIY toy road signs from And Next Comes L (on B.Inspired Mama). So cool!

2. I can't wait to make coloured ice sculptures like Happy Hooligans 

3. Try making your own cardboard marble maze like Winegums and Watermelons

4. We really enjoyed making Cornflour Slime  (Learn with Play at Home)

5. I'd not thought about making perler bead alphabet magnets like Life Lesson Plans, but now I definitely will!



6. Further your literacy exploration by making Dr Seuss coloured playdough like JDaniel4's Mom

7. My kids would love to make Dinosaur eggs and then go on a hunt, like The Joys of Boys 

8. Make music on the breeze with a stick wind chime from Where Imagination Grows 

9. What child wouldn't love making their own mud kitchen? This one from Adventures at home with Mum 

10. Get creative and make Decorative Paper Lanterns like Learn with Play at Home
