Painted Birdbath

This is a really lovely project which can get kids to design and paint their very own birdbath for the garden. They can paint both pots separately if they remember that one has to be upside down when they get glued together.

It is a great idea which we found on the lovely
'The Princess and The Frog' blog. It is a nice touch how they use fingerprints for flowers, they could also do bird related painting (for example, eggs and feathers) if they are feeling particularly artistic. By including the addition of names and the children's own fingerprints, it adds an extra personal touch.

They include a super step-by-step guide of images to help you know exactly what you're doing. Another pointer is to make sure you use suitably strong glue so no one gets it dropping on their foot if they bump into it!

Celery Stalk Rose Prints This is a lovely idea I saw on Maureen Cracknell's Homemade site. It's a cute thing to do next time you have a recipe which needs a whole head of celery in one go and therefore you cut off the stump rather than peeling individual stalks, or you can do the same with a head of crunchy lettuce. So next time you have one of those recipes, get your paints out and let your kids make some pretty art or some greetings cards. The original is h...

Egg Herb Garden This is a fun way to grow a small herb garden, which would make a sweet gift from a child to a cook in their family. The infographic below shows you all the steps you need to know, the main thing is to take the top off carefully so you may want to help children with this or take the top off before they get started. Large plants will obviously need transplanting - this one features a tomato which would need potting on. But chives, basil, thyme, parsley,...
