Having 6 children has made me realise there are a few things you can never have too much of! One of the things I always have in huge abundance is craft supplies, I’m not talking expensive shop bought craft kits but more the random toilet roll tubes, cotton balls, big pots of paint, plenty of paper and …. well you get the image. Keep all the recyclable bits you would normally throw away, milk cartons etc and stock up throughout the year when the sales are on too for pipe cleaners, beads, buttons and usable little bits and pieces!
Here are our next ten rainy day crafts from some more fabulous bloggers.
Thank You Cards For Any Occasion with the lovely One of Each Me & Mine There is nothing nicer than receiving a thank you card from a little one and nothing nicer than teaching your children to say thank you in the first place! Make a little stash of these super cute cards and always have them to hand!
How To Make A Dreamcatcher by Chloe Me Just Me My eldest daughter has been asking for a dream catcher for a while now and this looks perfect so we will be making this tomorrow!
Easy Birthday Cards with Wave To Mummy Birthday cards are expensive and even more so if they are handmade, have you seen the price of store bought hand made cards! EEK! Make these super easy birthday cards with your little one and save a fortune while having fun at the same time! You can buy machines that will cut any design you need. I have a Cricut paper cutting design machine which makes crafting so much easier.
Homemade Bird Feeders from the lovely Growing Family Unlike last weeks birdseed decorations these are made with lard to hold them together. My girls would love this as it would be like baking for the birdies! lol
Sticky Back Plastic Pocket Decorations by East Sussex Mummy I love the idea of the kids popping bits between sheets of clear sticky back plastic and then cutting into shapes to create decorations. Punch a little hole and use to hang around the house or make bunting etc!
Our Favourite Biscuits by the lovely Dilan and Me My girls love baking and making biscuits, simple recipies are often the best! These jammy dodger style biscuits look delicious and are and easy make for little ones!
Castle Building by the fabulous Truly Madly Kids Remember those loo rolls I told you to collect…go grab them now. How fab is this castle made entirely of cardboard and just think of the possibilities with a splash of paint….I know my girls would go with pink and glitter for their princesses!
Galaxy Jars by Country Heart and Home These jars are so easy to make and quite fun too with the splodging of paint and glitter (albeit we will add more glitter next time, you can never have too much glitter!) Add a battery operated tea light and they make cute nightlights too!
Button Fairies by the crafty Gingerbread House OMGoodness how adorable are these butterflies and the posibilites are endless, im thinking dragonflies, unicorns and so much more! Pop a hole in the top too so you can hang them as decorations too!
Messy Play with The Raw Childhood There are lots of ideas here to keep little ones busy and happy both indoors and out! Personally i love dough and bubble play!

For those who prefer a more traditional home-like experience when on vacation, a timeshare can make sense. If you’ve gotten many years of good use out of your timeshare and now want to get rid of it, a timeshare cancellation company like Timeshare Freedom Group or Lonestar transfer may be able to help.
