Welcome to the home of Crafty Bears!

This Easter, I’ll be running some live craft/activity sessions which will go out live on Instagram and Facebook (technology permitting), every weekday morning. 

UPDATED - All the craft-a-longs have now been and gone! I've uploaded all the videos below, so please enjoy them and share your creations with me!

The sessions will be approximately 15 minutes long, and will be easy to follow along with. They will be aimed at preschool-aged and primary-aged kids, but older and younger kids will enjoy the activities too, I reckon.


Heres the timetable for the week:

Monday 12th April - Penny Spinners

Here’s what you’ll need 

- a penny for each spinner you will make

- pens, stickers, paint, whatever your preferred crafty decoration technique is

We did it! Thanks so much for joining me live, and I hope lots of you will tune in later on to watch and make-a-long with your kids too. Sadly the Instagram feed cut out halfway through, but the full video is here ⬇
