I love doing crafts with Little Man but if you have followed this blog for a while you will know that I’m not the most creative person in the world. I need easy and simple instructions to follow and nothing to complicated. As it is coming up to Easter I wanted to make some Easter cards with Little Man and this is where Mrs Mactivity had my back!
Mrs Mactivity is run by a group of ex and current teachers who are passionate about providing educational resources for both teachers and parents. I love the fact that this website is coming from a teachers perspective and using their knowledge. You can choose by subject or by primary school year group. I love that I can choose something that is exactly for Little Man’s level and in line with what he is doing at school. There are also things for SEN children and activities to help with fine motor skills. There are so many categories to choose from, you will definitely find something to suit your child. It really is a great resource to have as a parent whether you are looking for 10 minutes to fill or for a more focused activity.
There are loads of Easter based crafts to have a go at on the website including Easter number activities and Easter cards. We had a go at a couple of the cards. Once you have downloaded the file, you can print out the template and an instruction sheet too. The instructions are nice and simple and there is a picture of what it should look like once it is completed. The cards are really lovely once completed. Little Man is still working on his as his attention span is a little short but I will share his finished card on Instagram soon. I couldn’t help having a go too!
I intend to do some more of the Easter themed activities over the holidays and am looking forward to trying the reading and writing out too with Little Man. I will share how we get on soon so look out for us working more with Mrs Mactivity soon.
You can sign up to Mrs Mactivity for free so if you are looking for some activities to do with the kids over Easter hop over to her website, I really rate it!
