Grab any old potatoes or apples or anything you can cut a shape into a flat surface and go! If you have young kids or toddlers, you will need to do this for them or if a bit older, help them draw an outline and cut out the shape and let them stamp away! Exciting playtime for kids and great for their senses!
Just let your imagination go wild with using potato print and ideas from Mollymoocrafts

4. Simple Fingerprints
As you know, like our PlayMama App encourages, there are 7 key skills most important to a child’s first two years of development.. so we think this finger print card is ideal to encourage sensory skills of one and two year old children!
5. Teacher’s Pet?
Now no-one liked a teachers pet back in our day before Motherhood, but this kids reindeer card is too adorable not to try out! Handprints, cut out and add some red fluff or button for Rudolphs nose! Easy Peasy
Another simple Christmas craft for kids again with fingers, but why not turn into Santa with some stick on eyes and a hat! Mother & Child playtime could get serious…
7. One step, two step…
If you have older kids encourage their attention to detail by making a more precise painting – adding patterns on top or attempting to pop a star on top. Need snow sprinkles?
Add some glue and sprinkle on some dry rice or desiccated coconut – it will smell good too! If the coconut gets your taste buds going check out our no bake recipes if you’ve still got some creative juices left for you and the kids to spend time together in the kitchen! (Pop a 5 minute FitMama curvy calves in while you’re there!)
8. Tweet Tweet!
Want to make your babies first Christmas card or festivity card? Take their little foot place in a flat bowl of paint and lightly stamp your baby’s foot onto some paper or card. If they have siblings, ask them to finish it off to make it a card from them both or all! If not, mummy may enjoy a spot of painting 😉
Or outline his little hand to let the older ones finish the sprinkles
9. Mr Snowman
So depending where you are in the World, UK – you may not have enough snow to make a real Snowman with the kids, unless maybe your in Scandinavia or Canada… But this Christmas card is both pretty and only requires paper plate and add whatever else you have around the house!
10. Pop up card
Add some 3D fun to the festive cards with these pop up card ideas.
Perfect for toddlers this game – but you may want to give them safe plastic fork or a baby rubber fork. Help them dip the fork into the paint and direct their hand across the paper in strokes for the first one, them let them re-create a Picasso! Kind of :-/
And…. relax Mums! Now pick at something you enjoy or take 5 mins with some relaxing WellMama Yoga
