Have you ever wanted to make your own kite? These directions were originally printed inside the dust jacket of our first book, Windy. Instead of paper, you can also use a thin plastic or an lightweight unrippable paper like Yupo. Have fun!Read More
I found this very easy pinwheel photo-tutorial from Petit Poulou which we pinned to our Windy board on pinterest. To make on, you will need: square paper, hole punch, brass paper fastener, bbq skewer or chopstick and scissors. It took me 5 minutes to make and when I photographed it outside it spun like...a pinwheel ^_^Read More
I don't like buying a lot of plastic Easter materials which only live in the house a few days. Here is an upcycled basket which is fun to make — made with newspaper, strips of coloured paper and washi tape. Oh, we did break down and buy some commercial stickers ^_^Read More
We visited the planetarium this weekend and this was a fantastic after-activity: make a universe with the paper from a coffee filter + felt pens. Wetting the paper with water gives a great watercolour effect. After we'd completed the solar system, we moved onto rainbows and clouds. It's a great idea, thanks to DTLK Kids for the idea, which you can see here.Read More
