I love sourcing the internet for activities to print off for the kids at home, especially for my three year old W who started preschool in September last year so is really keen to learn, even at home! Mrs Mactivity is a new website launched to offer an array of activity sheets, worksheets and a great selection of useful and beautiful learning resources for parents to use at home, as well as childminders and nurseries too for EYFS, KS1 and KS2.
I try my best to complete themed activities at home. Once a celebration is approaching, such as Christmas or Easter, I like to get the kids involved in sticker books, crafts or colouring as well as decorating the house to make it feel really themed! As Mothers Day is nearly upon us (Hurrah!), I thought it would be great to do some Mothers Day activities at home with W. She’s really into her coloured pens at the moment, so I thought it would be really fitting to do a Mother’s Day craft activity, involving her new pens!
Mrs Mactivity offers several celebratory crafts under their category section and it was easy to locate the Mothers Day colouring and craft sheets. We chose this lovely print out of a Mother’s Day bouquet which we would colour, decorate and cut and fold to make the perfect bouquet! I actually persuaded 7 year old B to get involved and I have to say I think he enjoyed it more! He really took his time as I know he is super work proud and wanted it just right. I even ended up colouring one in myself!
The both had a lot of fun using all the pens to colour in the flowers and when W knew cutting was involved she was happy! She was really pleased to have something she could give me too which I think children love as they feel special. B being a little older wanted to keep it for himself!
Mrs Mactivity offers such a diverse array of craft activities and worksheets from themed and celebratory crafts, to writing skills, SEN and reading. What is great is that you can sign up for FREE which will get you access to a limited range of hand drawn resources, their customer service and blog and will give any parent, childminder or nursery worker the access to browse their simple website to access the resources they need. Alternatively, we can take a trial for £1.97 giving you access to 25 downloads, or £9.97 for full access.
It’s a beautiful, bright website and I had lots of fun navigating my way around the different categories – there is loads to choose from and if you would like to check to any learning resources of craft ideas to do at home with your children, then click here.
Thank you to Mrs Mactivity for allowing me to access your fantastic learning resources in order for me to review your website and what it has to offer.
