I am not sure where I saw this idea. This year for Mother’s Day I helped the Toddlers at Toddler Group at church make flower cards.
Years ago I had a kit to make angels (as Christmas decorations), which I made up and gave away to friends. I saved the pattern and last year made myself some in silver. When handling the silver fabric it reminded me some much of fish that I decided to make 5 loaves and 2 fish to help tell the bible story of Jesus feeding the 5000. (Instructions and templates below)
Ohhh and here are the angels.
I made of of these awhile ago (see https://littlecraftyone.wordpress.com/2014/10/28/crafting-2014-portable-high-chair-and-nappy-holder/). Someone else I knew was expecting a baby so I made another and wrote down some instructions for making one. I have now made myself one as well.
Nappy and wipe holder instructions.
I came across the idea of making a button snake on the Happy Hooligans website (http://happyhooligans.ca/button-snake/). So I made several for family and friends – one of which lives in my friend’s bag and is brought out when she needs a quiet 3 year old for a bit. The instructions used a felt square at the bottom to act as a stop – I made mine a bit more snake like by making a head (two pieces of felt oversewn together with a piece of ribbon for a tongue) and made a bag to keep it in.
I help out at a local Carer and Toddler group. We often do crafty things with them and I was ask to think of something. I used a well known search engine on the internet and first on the on the list of suggestions was this idea https://entertainingmonsters.wordpress.com/2012/10/29/rainbow-sunshine-toddler-craft/
So here is my example…….
and here some the children made.
