Creative Crafts

Love Parenting is creating its own craft wall and would love to see and display photos of your creative play. The messier the better! We will post a craft suggestion every two weeks usually on a Monday giving you plenty of time to collect the materials needed for each craft, so check back for ideas and be sure to send in your own suggestions of craft ideas and photographs you have of your completed craft. You can send your craft idea and/or photographs of your finished craft to info@loveparenting.ie and we will upload your craft for everyone to see!
