Here are my 9 for this week from top left hand corner - @playinspiredlearning I just love the use of natural materials in this , @makefilmplay I remember making similar dolls with my mum and they were so much fun, @creatingcreatives the natural elements and the colours in a scavenger hunt really stood out for me.
2nd row - @dudincraft I couldn't not include seat turtles when these appeared this week and do check out my sea turtle conservation post for kids as well, I am looking out for ideas to display kids work and this create wall from @thea_snv I LOVE... thinking could I fit that in our house, @paperbirdsldn uses one of my favourite techniques in this colourful collage.
Bottom row - with Easter around the corner and Spring this week these egg carton chicks from @curiouslittlepeople are so cute and funky! COLOUR COLOUR COLOUR from @minimonets with this paint splatter picture how much fun would that be to make and last but not least these colourful circles inspired by Eric Carle on @letsmakeartuk
KEEP up the #crafts and #creativekids it's fantastic to see and I can't want to see what spring brings next week.

I the creative children's community on Instagram, finding people both friendly and inspiring! This week, along with @mielaerkerasmussen (who has many amazing activities!), I had the privilege of guest hosting @kidscrafts101. This initiative, moderated by @redtedart & @incredibusy is a great way to connect and share many forms of creativity. The only thing that was difficult about this week was selecting the featured projects- there are just so many wonderful ideas! From the top, left to right: 1) Check out @makefilmplay for her stop motion videos 2) The use of straws are ingenious for printing from @creatingcreatives 3) @handywithscissors made these flowers out of plastic bags!! 4) Floating chalk prints from @artcampla (can't wait to try this!) 5) Design your own spinning top with @thebluebarn 6) Adding lemon juice to watercolour (haven't seen this before) from @thea_snv. 7) Self portrait prints from @studio4art: I like the bright backgrounds! 8) A giant tree from @lineandformatelier (I would have definitely been into making this when I was a teacher!) 9) And finally, I love the mix of painted paper and modeling clay on @paintedpaperart's flowers! A BIG thank you to everyone for joining in!
