I made a fire-engine with my charge (you could do any mode of transport). We stuck boxes together and then painted it.  Then we stuck his picture on the front, so that he looked like the driver!

I have been with the same family for 6 years and have completely run out out of ideas.  They have seen just about all I have to offer, but I would really like to make something special with the children.  Any ideas please?  Maybe I'm just lacking insperation at the moment.

Ive been stumped what to do as well. Last year i got a make your own gift bag from The works bookshop. Got the children to colour it in and stick little flowers on it. Poppped a little teddy bear in the gift bag as a token present.

Obviously cant do the same this year. Have decided to do little gift boxes/bags which the children have to put together and decorate. Our Tescos had some weeny boxes of chocolates for 99p so got a couple of them to put inside.

I have bought mummy a tee-shirt and my charges have decorated it with a hand print each.

You could do some cooking, cake, biscuits, chocolates in as Caroline was saying a box/bag decorted by the kids.

You could make snow shakers out of empty jars and by moulding playdough in and popping a bit of glitter in for the snow. As someone else said, paint a plain vase with glass paint, get them to paint onto a canvass and frame it or make a collage of pictures of the children in a frame.

My charge is 2 and we made a card - handprints in a circle shaped like petals and a lovely photo of him in the middle - it's really cute  Smiley

We decorated a plant pot  - painted it white and then we made it spotty with different coloured thumb prints. Used acyrillic (sp) paints and varnished over it with pva to protect it and to make it glossy. i must admit it looks cool.

Ok, so I have 2 weeks to fill, as charge has 2 weeks holiday from school..... I really need some craft activities to do. Like really simple ones which are fun (obviously! lol.) and could take up a fair bit of time. I cant do much cooking with her...she is not allowed anything with sugar in.  Undecided So need to think of some other stuff.....

She is nearly 4 btw. WHere i live, its quite hard to get craft stuff to use, so anything from simple stuff would be ideal. I have a few ideas, but would like to know if anyone else has anything else??

Thanks.
