Father's Day Craft

Children have a special relationship with their father. While mothers are their emotional anchors, fathers are often their exploration anchors. Being around a father mostly means playtime or crazy fun activity time. All because fathers enjoy nothing else more than seeing a smile on their children's face.

So, this fathers day, we decided to craft one father-child activity special - the high toss. This is one of the most enduring moments for dads and tots. It was fun creating this craft and brought up happy memories for when our toddler was under 2 years and enjoyed soaring through the air only to land in the safe comfort of dad's arms.

So, what's your favorite dad-child activity?

Happy crafting!

Paper Plate Frog With Moving Tongue

Did you know there are over 5000 species of frogs? Or some frogs can jump 20 times their size or that some species like poison dart frogs are poisonous?

Frogs are fascinating animals for everyone but especially for children. They come in so many colors and have quite a few entertaining characteristics. They hop or jump everywhere. They are amphibious - meaning they can live on the land or in the water. That’s a fun ability!

Have you seen a frog eat? They have super long sticky tongues that they use to catch food such as flies or small insects. It’s quite something to watch them go about getting their belly full with just the tongue.

This movement is so fast often the prey doesn't have a chance to escape. A frog's tongue can snap back into its mouth within 15/100ths of a second.

After our popular Chomp Chomp Bunny Craft, we found that frog meal time actually makes for a fun craft activity for preschool children at school, art classes or home.

All you need is a paper plate and basic craft supplies and you are all set to make your very own “Eat Eat Frog Toy”. Have fun and learn too.

Ninja Father's Day Card for Kids

My husband loves everything, Ninja. He has watched all episodes and read the manga for over 5 - 7 Japanese shounen series over the last 10 - 12 years. He says that Ninja’s are not just about fighting.

They are about self-discipline and protecting the innocent, which is a great model for kids to learn about.

So, this year on his birthday, we decided to surprise him by making a ninja card! Our daughter then wrote a lovely message inside in her own inimitable style to wish her Papa Ninja. This will make an adorable father's day craft too.

Thanks for having me here Shikha! I'm so happy to share this awesomely cute set of crowns with you all.

Whether it's fast-paced and on my toes or slow and calm, without their bright presence I wouldn't be growing. So, here they are..

Paper Plate Rocking Elephant

As the saying goes "It's not how many toys you have, it's how much you play with the ones you have that help children grow & learn." In that spirit, we decided to create a toy-craft rocking elephant from a single paper-plate, creating a rocking motion toy for our tot to play with. Talk about achieving two objectives with a single effort - teach them to be creative and get them a toy for playing with later.

So, next time you are wondering about a new toy for your tot, think to make vs buy.

Happy toy-crafting!

Egg Carton Animals

Did you know you can make these cute animal crafts from an empty egg carton? As we are all home-bound and limited in our ability to visit craft stores, it is useful to re-use and re-cycle material from essential items such as egg cartons, pastas, and cardboard tubes.

In this recycled craft, we used egg cartons to make a funky monkey, a naughty panda, and a cutie tiger. With just a scissor and some colorful paint, your child can make adorable animal figurines that they can use during pretend play or as countertop decorations in their rooms.
