May Craft Kits

The May Craft Kits should have arrived by now! Are you excited?!
Messy Boy and I are starting to think about June already but before then we’ve got to share what we got up to with our May kit.
Messy Boy actually really enjoyed this craft. He particularly liked his addition of glitter!! We got a lot of glitter everywhere!
He thought it was hilarious to hang the raindrops off the washing line, to see the sunlight through them. They’ve been around our living room a bit too!
Ok so Messy Boy actually barely helped with this one – he was too interested in everything else that day!! He was fascinated helping Daddy to push the split pin through each layer of card though.
As a result there’s not a great deal of decoration on our windmill picture. But it does look pretty on the mantle!
This is a craft from This Simple Home which I just loved.
This one was a thinking craft. To get Messy Boy thinking about all the different things that he likes. And to say thankyou for each of them, as we wrote them on the hearts. He coloured in a few hearts too. It’s at this point that I will say I wish I had a child who loved crafting, but I don’t!! He prefers getting covered in paint (which to be honest I’m quite happy about, a boy after my own heart!) It does make road-testing these crafts a little tricky though!
Once I’d written all the things he loved onto the hearts I stuck the hearts onto the strings for him as he was off racing toy cars along the floor. I added this verse from the Bible: 1 John 4:16 “God is love. Whoever lives in love, lives in God, and God in him.”
Messy Boy came back later to colour in the cloud!
It’s on display now, to remind us all to be thankful ❤
