Welcome to the first post in the “Nourishing Creativity” series.

This series run on a Monday, and will include craft ideas and other creative activities to do with children. I will also take this opportunity to talk about all things creative in relation to children. Stay tuned.

If you are a writer, a crafter or have creative activities you would like to suggest, please contact me about your contribution. I want this series to run every week, if possible, so you help is welcome!

Without further ado, the view from the craft table this week…

We collected bits and pieces from the garden and made crowns – one for Elka, one for Eve and one for me. I helped Elka twirl the jasmine vine into a ‘crown’ shape, and Elka stuck flowers in. Pretty.

Just a simple handprint…we took coloured paper, and marbled coloured paint. This could of course get messy, but Elka is finicky about cleaning her hands, so after every handprint, she diligently went to the basin to wash off the paint. We even did rainbow footprints from Eve’s feet…I have been meaning to do this for weeks.
