The colour blue is all around us in the natural world, and can be considered a calming colour, serene and cool. Here's a suggested list of 10 blue themed kids crafts to help you add a little more of the colour into your life!
1. Blue Embroidered Felt Crown
Create a set of dress up crowns using felt and embroidery threads. The soft felt makes a perfect practice fabric to get little hands sewing, with supervision! Finish off with a sewing machine to create a sturdy crown that will last for years to come.
2. Air Dry Clay Fossils
Let’s imagine! Follow this simple step-by-step tutorial by The Poncy Pantry and learn how to create these fun and easy clay dinosaur fossils. Arrange your own fossil hunt for the children.
