My daughter has a cute collection of turtles, different sizes and colors – she loves them all! One day we have decided to make a paper turtle, which was really a great fun. She loves origami and all kinds of paper crafts, so this one was no different :)
I guess everyone is already in the Christmas mood, doing Christmas shopping, preparing the Christmas menu and trying hard not to forget anything!
So while you are busy with all the preparations, here is a very simple Christmas craft idea that will keep your little one occupied for a while :)
You can make it with just 1 sheet of paper, some colorful pom-poms and glue. You could also hang it or use it to decorate a Christmas card or a gift bag. You can play with colors and different sizes to obtain amazing results.
Toilet paper roll animals are great and inexpensive activity you can do with your kids almost any time and anywhere, even during holidays, when traveling. You don’t need to have sophisticated suppliers and you can always replace the colored paper with white sheet on which you can draw using markers.

If you have ever wondered how to make a paper fish with your kids, then you will find this simple origami a great fun! We did this one just because it’s summer time!

My daughter loves all kind of fine motor skills activities. She also likes to create things from paper. A few months ago, we went to Boston and visited New England Aquarium. They had a really impressive penguin colony – do you know why penguins are black and white?
