WEEKEND FUN WITH THE KIDS MADE EASY

The cooler weather has officially arrived and with many rainy days on their way it’s time to get creative with these fun craft activities that will occupy the kids for hours on end.

Create a fort!

It’s easy to build an exciting, mystical fort using simple items in your lounge room!

Just grab some large white sheets, ample cushions and decorative lighting to create an exciting world that will play on every child’s imagination. Spread the sheets wide across at least 6 chairs, and cover the floor space with comfortable doonas and every cushion you can to create a cosy nook.

Grab your favourite picture books, healthy snacks and a torch and let story-time begin.

Funny face biscuits!

At Elements, we know our residents love mixing things up in the kitchen. Cooking with the kids is a great way to spend quality time together, especially when it comes time to lick the bowl!

Next time you are looking for something to cook, try these Funny-face biscuits that are easy to make and delicious to devour.

Ingredients you will need:

  • Icing sugar
  • Arrowroot biscuits
  • Mini marshmallows, sprinkles and Smarties.

Method:

  1. Make three separate bowls of coloured icing sugar of your choice, and spread round arrowroot biscuits across trays in preparation.
  2. Involve the kids by getting them to ice a biscuit in their chosen colour, top with two Smarties for eyes, a marshmallow for a nose and sprinkles for a mouth!
  3. Leave to set for 15 minutes in the fridge before giving to the kids to enjoy.
