Here are some fabulous tips to keep kids busy during the school holidays! Enjoy!
We LOVE LOVE LOVED making these tie-dye tops and shopping bags! We bought a simple kit online and some plain white tops and bags. The process was sooo much simpler than I expected, the kids loved getting involved with tying the knots and bands into the fabric, applying the dye (Ezra was a bit too young to do this bit), then leaving it to set, washing and drying. As you can see, the end result looks great!

Making a volcano (with exploding larva)
There are so many different ways of making your volcano- we used things from our recycling box to make ours! Using an old box as a base (this also stopped the larva from spilling on the floor and making too much mess), then screwed up old paper and plastic bags around a yoghurt pot and stuck it all down with masking tape to make the mountain shape. We then enjoyed painting the mountain and decorating around the base with real leaves!
We followed an easy recipe to make the larva splutter and spill over the top of our volcano…it was so much fun and kept us entertained for ages!
