Mr Postman~

The kids loved making mail for their friends while creating these adorable little postmen/mailmen


You may need

  • Brown construction paper
  • White paper
  • Peach paper
  • Grey paper
  • Stamp printable
  • Crayons
  • Gluesticks 


Start by cutting an A5 rectangle from brown construction paper. Cut another smaller white paper rectangle. Cut a peach circle and a simple grey hat shape.

We glued the white paper to the brown paper as well as the peach paper to the top. Add the hat to the grey paper. We printed out a stamp from google to attach to the white paper. This will be your letter.

We gave the kids crayons and let them draw on faces. They took the initiative to write their friends names on the white letters as well as decorate the hat! 


These were so cute and my kids really loved making these and sharing with their friends! It really helped them to understand what a mailman does!

Doctor Doctor~

These doctors peeking out of their bags are the perfect way to keep your child occupied for half an hour!


You may need:

  • Black A4 construction paper 
  • White A4 paper 
  • Red A4 paper
  • Peach A4 paper
  • Brown A4 paper
  • Crayons
  • Gluesticks


Cut a small handle shape into a piece of black construction paper. This part can be tricky so we used a knife before give it to the kids precut.

Next we cut a piece of white A4 paper in half (a5 size) and round off the edges. With the remaining paper we cut out a white circle.

We cut another circle the same size from peach A4 paper (you could use white and colour it in). We cut out a simple hair shape from brown paper (again youcould just colour the hair with crayons) and finally we cut out a Red Cross shape.

We glued the white body shape to the black paper about 1 inch down we folded up the bottom (with the handle) and glued it down as seen above. Next we glued on the head and hair. Lastly we glued on the white circle to the black bag and attached the Red Cross to the centre of the white circle.

To finish up we drew on our doctors faces and decorated his white doctors jacket.


This is an easily customisable project with lots of fiddly pieces! As you know I love a craft that involves the kids drawing on their own faces to make them unique!

Spoon Chef~

Still thinking about community helpers and occupations. Today we bring you… spoon chef!!!

You may need:

  • Plastic spoons or craft sticks and peach paper
  • Black A4 paper
  • White A4 paper
  • Crayons
  • Glue
  • Googly eyes or eye stickers


Using a plastic spoon would be much easier for this. We used craft sticks! So we coloured in our craft sticks and drew on some black buttons.

We glued on a peach oval for the head and cut out a white chef hat shape as seen above. We then cut out a little black moustache shape. Finally add some Googly eyes or eye stickers and your chef is complete! 

Simple and effective! You can even use these as puppets.

Bandaid Buddy~

These make perfect “Get Well Soon” cards and are so easy to make and lots of fun too!


You may need:

  • Construction paper
  • Red and pink A4 paper
  • Bandaids
  • Googly eyes
  • Crayons
  • Glue


Begin with folding an A4 piece of construction paper in half. Next attach a bandaid to the centre of the card. Cut out a variety of red and pink hearts and glue on as desired.

Draw arms and legs around your bandaid and glue on some Googly eyes. 

Finally write a nice get well soon message inside!

These are so cute and are sure to brighten anyone’s day! 

Nice Nurse~

Following on with our “Doctor” theme this month, here we have some adorable nurses! 

You may need:

  • White construction paper
  • Red A4 paper
  • Crayons
  • Gluesticks
  • Brown yarn


To start with we cut out a body shape as seen above (Keep it simple if you have toprepare  a lot of these!) we then cut out red crosses for the hat and dress. Two per child is great! 

I have the kids crayons and they coloured in the hands and face as well as colouring in her shoes. They especially loved drawing on their own faces. Finally we glued on some brown hair which was very fiddly and we all got sticky fingers! 

This was a great project and I love how unique each nurse is despite everyone starting with the same base shape. Very cute! 

Bandaid Bunny~

Learning about community helpers means learning about going to the doctor! Today we have a poorly bunny who needs some help!

You may need:

  • A4 Construction paper background
  • White construction paper
  • Googly eyes or eye stickers
  • Pink A4 paper
  • Crayons
  • Gluesticks
  • Bandaids


Firstly cut out a large white circle for your bunny’s head. Cut out two white ear shapes (you can easily find templates with a quick google but keep it simple!)

Cut out two smaller ear pieces from pink paper and a small round nose shape. 

Next get the children to glue in place all of the loose pieces. We then stuck on two eyes and I let them loose with the crayons! We drew sad and sick looking faces! Finally we added some bandaids to patch him up!


The kids loved drawing on their bunny as well as opening up the bandaids which can be quiet tricky for small fingers! A great fine motor activity! 

Fluffy Snowman~

The kids just loved building their own snowmen using fluffy cotton balls!


You may need:

  • Blue A4 construction paper
  • White cotton balls
  • Orange A4 
  • Googly eyes
  • Sequins/buttons
  • Glue


First of all draw out two circles in a snowman shape on the blue paper

Glue down white cotton balls inside the circles. Attach an orange triangular nose and add two Googly eyes. Finish off by adding sequins to his tummy as buttons.


Children love sequins especially when there is a big bag with lots of different shapes and colours inside to explore!
