8 Summer Activities for Kids πŸ–ŒπŸŽ¨πŸ–πŸ“–

1. Planting flower seeds and watch them grow!

2. Plan a treasure hunt in the garden. Remember to put your clues in the right place. I’ve written the hiding place in the corner of each clue.

3. Craft session making handmade cards. Add colour and stickers and have fun!
4. Make a decorated trinket box. You can buy the mache box from hobbycraft. Using a brush and mod podge stick bits of the deco patch paper on to the box. Then after drying, fill it with jewellery, badges or sweets.

5. Make suncatchers. You need washi tape, scissors and tissue paper.

 

Draw out your design and then stick washi tape over the lines 

Cut round the washi tape and your suncatcher is ready!


6. Make Hama bead coasters with your name initial


I would use the same colour for the letters so that it stands out.

7. Write a letter or draw a picture for grandparents or friends telling them about your holidays. It would be fun posting it in the letterbox and a lovely surprise for them.

8. The memory game. I used to love playing this game in the summer holidays! 


You will need a tray, a tea towel, paper and pencil and household objects.


Depending on the age of those playing the more or less items you use. Everyone looks at the items on the tray. Trying to remember the items. 

Cover the tray with a tea towel and then everyone writes down what they remember. Whoever remembers the most is the winner.

An alternative game is to look at all the items, cover the tray. Remove one item and the other players have to remember which item is missing.

** Have fun trying these activities. If you do try them, please send me a photo! Annasuncrafts@aol.com

Paul Simon in Glasgow πŸŽ€β­οΈ

Last week I went to see Paul Simon in Glasgow on his last tour. I grew up listening to my mum’s Bridge over troubled water album and Graceland. I never dreamed I would see him live! It was certainly a pinch yourself moment. I loved Diamonds on the soles of her shoes. This lady fair enjoyed herself, she was kicking her leg up to show the soles of her shoes every time he sung it. (And no it wasn’t me!!) All ages were dancing and singing. You can call me Al and Graceland were also amazing. I couldn’t believe that he sung Bridge Over Troubled Water. ❀️ An unforgettable evening.

Bobby Bumble bee!

Photos of my wee companion who kept me company in the garden when I was writing up paper work! I named it Bobby like my bookmarks! Bzzzz 🐝🐝🐝

Jane McDonald Live @ His Majesty’s Theatre Aberdeen πŸŽ€

I went to see Jane McDonald on Friday night and she didn’t disappoint! I loved her renditions of This is me and Never Enough from The Greatest Showman. She is really funny and so entertaining. Near the end of the show this older lady got up from her seat and started moving to the aisle near me. I thought she was unwell or needed the loo. But no she started dancing away like crazy! Loved it! πŸ’ƒπŸΎπŸ’ƒπŸΎ. A great night.

Hello to July!

It’s a lovely time of year. Yesterday I was out for a walk (I got slightly sunburnt) – always remember sun cream folks!! Β Anyway, I saw two blue dragonfly-like beasties (Scottish word). I’ve never seen them before. Thanks to google I discovered they are called blue Damselfly. Beautiful wee insect.


Just a reminder that I currently have 10% off of teacher cards and gifts in my etsy shop. Ends 14th July.

There are also cards for graduation, Christening, births, weddings and good luck at uni. Free Postage in the UK.
