'Creative at Home'

This is a mini-series of arty ideas to do at home with children and young people to keep hands busy and minds calm during these unprecedented times. Easy to follow, fun to do and using bits and pieces found at home during lockdown.  

You might like to try some of these creative activities as your optional art and craft activity or your mindfulness activity.  

Remember to send in a photograph of you with your creations so we can share them on Twitter.

Happy creating!

#1 Creative at Home - Wish Jar

Welcome to 'Creative at Home' with Vanessa Rogers for AC Education. In this first episode we create a gorgeous wish jar to capture wants and wishes of the whole household ready for when we are out and about once more.
Using recycled materials, paint and a bit of sparkle, this easy to do activity will get everyone looking forward to a brighter future.

#2 Creative at Home - Family Crest

Welcome to 'Creative at Home' with Vanessa Rogers for AC Education. This time we turn the broken crayons at the bottom of the colouring set and paint into a brilliant family crest! Using a simple concept called wax resist, watch as your drawings burst into life ready to display in your window to say ‘hello’ to the outside world.

This little trick will look great printed on yesterday’s newspaper so no last minute purchase required.
