I just shared (here) Neil Buchanan's top tips for getting your kids involved in arts and crafts and, more specifically, the Robinsons Double Concentrate ‘Squash Monsters’ competition so - as promised - here are our entries !
Whenever the kids want to do messy play, first of all, we totally cover the dining room table in everything you can think of, especially if it's shiny, sparkly, fluffy or funny-shaped. Best to do this bit when Madhouse Daddy Mike isn't around !!
Then I just basically let them get on with it and tell them to experiment with colours and textures. They love having a good rummage in our "interesting odds and ends" bag and inevitably find something that inspires them !
Whatever the end result, the important thing is having fun !
