Easy craft ideas for kids to make at home


As the days draw in, and the weather takes a turn for the worst, entertaining your children at home becomes ever more important! So, from DIY hamster toys to seasonal crafts, here are a few easy ideas for activities to do with your children at home.




Get your seasonal craft on

It’s a beautiful time of year, so why not do some seasonal crafting to suit! Here are a few ideas:

1.    Cut an apple in half and create pumpkin paintings. 
Simple dip the half apple in orange paint and print the shape onto paper. 
Glue on a brown pipe cleaner stalk, googly eyes and draw a mouth and away you go!

2.    Go pumpkin picking. Pumpkins can be fun for many different things. 
Why not pick out your favourite at the pumpkin field; carve a fun shaped face into the side; get your bake on for a pumpkin pie; or cooking up a pumpkin soup.



Go on an adventure walk, and then get crafting

This time of year is beautiful, with its autumn leaves, fallen conkers and so much more. 
Why not take your children out on a nature walk and pick up a load of seasonal goodies to get craft with? 
Here are a few ideas for things you can do with your autumnal pickings.

1.    Use conkers to help toddlers paint. All they need to do is dip the conker into the paint, and make patterns like flowers, dots and so much more.

2.    Create bunting or an autumn mobile with fallen autumn leaves. Use a piece of string and tie the stalks of leaves into pretty patterns. 
There are so many beautiful, bright colours to include.



Make something for your pets

From DIY hamster toys to homemade cat or dog toys, why not recycle old items from around your home to create things for your home. 
Here are a couple of ideas:

1.    Rip an old t-shirt into strips and tie them around an old tennis ball. This creates an ideal tug toy or fetch toy to play with puppies and dogs!

2.    Stack up old toilet roll cardboard inserts into a pyramid and glue old ice lolly sticks to the sides to hold them together. This creates a fun tunnel stack for your hamster.



So, whether you want to have a little adventure outside before getting crafty with seasonal ideas or recycle things at home to make DIY pet toys, these ideas should be everything you need to keep your children occupied indoors.

UNICEF and Pampers Are Joining Forces Once Again


Pampers and UNICEF are halfway to reaching global elimination of Maternal and Newborn Tetanus

All babies are amazing! 

They bring their own special form of magical happiness to everyone around them, and they always know how to somehow put a smile on your face or make you laugh. 


You always want to do whats right for your little one and you'll stop at nothing to make sure that he/she has everything to meet his/her needs.
From Pampers to jabs.

But what about those who don't have it as easy as us and can't simple pop to the GPs to get their little ones immunisation up to date.
That can mean life or death to those parents who can't.

Pampers donates 1 vaccine against maternal and newborn tetanus for every pack of Pampers nappies and wipes sold through the “1 Pack = 1 Vaccine” Pampers-UNICEF campaign. 
The campaign is now in its 11th year, and during that time, amazing babies around the world have helped Pampers and UNICEF to eliminate maternal and newborn tetanus in 19 countries – with only 19 more to go, we’re halfway towards our goal of global elimination! 
Thanks to the support of families, since the Pampers-UNICEF “1 pack=1 vaccine” campaign began, an estimated 500,000** newborn babies have been saved and a vaccine has reached a mother and her baby every second. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=FUtzwKgWvwI 


There are lots of ways that we can all support this important campaign! 
If you share a photo of your amazing baby with #1photo1vaccine or #PampersUNICEF, on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram – Pampers® will donate the equivalent cost of one vaccine!

How amazing is that, the power of social media!!

This year, celebrity mum and former Girls Aloud singer Kimberley Walsh is supporting the Pampers-UNICEF campaign. Kimberley says: “I feel hugely honoured to be supporting the Pampers-UNICEF campaign in its 11th year. As a mum to Bobby, and expecting my second child later this year, I feel great empathy with other mothers around the world who, just as I do, want nothing more than to deliver a happy, healthy baby. 
The reason I’m so passionate about this campaign is that mums and dads here in the UK can make a very real difference by doing nothing more than buying the Pampers that they need for their little ones. 
It’s phenomenal and makes me feel very proud of what we can achieve together.
How else can you help make a difference?
As well as sharing a photo of your amazing baby, there are other ways that we can all help to work together to eliminate maternal and new born tetanus:
  • 1 pack= 1 life-saving vaccine:  For each purchase of a Pampers® pack with the UNICEF logo
  • Donate to UNICEF: By becoming a monthly donor to UNICEF today you can join thousands of other parents who donate every month to improve the lives of these vulnerable children

It really is that simple, you can make a massive difference just by picking up a pack of Pampers® with the UNICEF logo on the pack and that will help protect the world’s amazing babies against newborn tetanus.
