I really want to encourage Big Brother to be crafty and get over my fear of mess by planning a couple of messy craft sessions a week. Today we made our own Valentine Day cards with some help from a potato.
First I cut a potato in half and cut a heart into one half using a cookie cutter.
I put a generous dollop of red paint onto an old plate and let BB have a go at printing heart shapes on a piece of paper which he loved.
Then I folded a piece of A4 paper in half and let him stamp a couple of hearts on one side. This one came complete with a handprint!
Simple but effective and hopefully Nanny and Auntie Caroline will love their handmade Valentines! After we had finished BB was let loose on the paints which he got everywhere!He had such a great time I will definitely be doing this again with him.
