Once Faith latches onto a craft activity that she enjoys we have to spend at least the following week doing just that! This week it has been decorating wooden spoons and paper plates to make spoon people and masks.

It’s a great activity to do with pre-schoolers as it is fairly cheap and they can do it all themselves. I raided the pound shop and got a packet of 6 wooden spoons and a squeezy tube of PVA glue. We already had loads of crafty bits and bobs at home, including googly eyes, although when I was in town I did see they had them in The Works – a bargain at 2 packets for £1.

We also got a cheap pack of paper plates and found some lolly sticks to use as handles to create paper plate face masks.

Despite covering the dining room in pom poms, googly eyes, pipe cleaners and stars, Faith absolutely loved doing this and was, quite rightly, very proud of her creations – even if some of them are a little abstract looking!
