Kitchen Roll Colouring

If you're like me and don't have any colouring books then using kitchen roll is the ideal solution. All you need is felt tips. Colour in some of the dots to create your master piece.

Who would have thought kitchen roll could look so good?!

 Here's a design I  made earlier.

Straw Maze

You will need;

- a cardboard lid


- scissors

- glue

Cut the straws into various sizes to create your maze.
See picture below to help you complete this activity.
You could use a marble or small ball to get around your maze.
You could even challenge someone in your house and time yourself.
You can have endless fun with your maze and make it as easy or difficult as you wish. Enjoy!!

 Creative Collage

Mrs Haythornwhite's Challenges


Origami Dog

Prep time: 10 mins

You will need:

- A square piece of coloured paper
- Black pen

Top tip: be sure to press firmly on each crease when you fold.



Step 1
 Fold the square of paper in half diagonally, unfold an then fold in half     diagonally in the other direction and unfold. Then, fold all the points inwards to meet in the centre to make a smaller square. 


Step 2.
Open out one of the points then fold so that the point meets the previous crease. Fold back along the crease to make a square again. 


Step 3. 

Open out the opposite point and then fold back on itself so that the point extends beyond the square by approximately 1.5cm. Fold in half as shown.


Step 4.

Open out the front flap so the point is extended, then fold diagonally as shown in the centre picture above. Then fold the point down along the crease line.


Step 5. 

Repeat step four on the opposite side, mirroring the actions. Invert the fold on the front of the dog’s head to extend the snout. Draw on a nose and pair of eyes to finish.



House Of Cards

The goal here is to build a structure out of playing cards; a house and a roof.

Balancing cards on one another is not easy and it becomes more difficult as you build up the cards and they get higher.
A tip is to build on a hard, solid surface. This will give the base a good support.

What shape of house can you build?

How high can you build your house?

Don’t forget to take a photo of your finished house (hopefully before it collapses) and send it to your class teacher. Looking forward to seeing your creations.

Here’s an example;

Outdoor photography

We love taking photos in my house, we like to make them fun. Can you design a frame like mine and take some arty outdoor pictures? I'd love to see them! 




Pebble Painting

Painting rocks is a favourite with my children. Being at home has been difficult for some people, can you decorate some rocks with uplifting pictures or words?
You can hide them for people to find.
