Rhubarb and Wren is a parenting and family lifestyle blog, full of play ideas, arts and craft tutorials, recipes and reviews, and articles exploring different ways to support your children’s development. We’re always looking for ways to connect with nature in our play, learning and growing, and we love a good mud kitchen and chocolate cake. Though we try very hard not to combine the two, our fingers are quite often sticky!

Rhubarb and Wren

2 weeks 6 days ago

We've been keeping up our summer nature studies despite being driven inside by the rain. Our home-made magnifying glasses (using lens we got from the Milton Keynes Play Association (MKPA) Scrapstore) have helped us take a close look at our nature finds - blackbird eggshells, owl feathers, and a bit of an old bees nest. Fascinating stuff! Want to see how we made them? Head over to the tutorials on the blog: http://bit.ly/MagnifyGlass #scrapstore, #naturestudy, #homemade

Now the summer holidays are in full, sweltering, swing, I've been looking for activities to keep the kids busy when it's too hot to blow off steam outside. This fun little craft is great because it uses ordinary arts & craft supplies, and has several stages. First they make their custom scratch art backgrounds, then they cover them up... and then they get scratching new pictures on top! Want to get your kids busy making their own scratch art too?…
