Neevah be Nimble

My posts feel a little bit all over the place at the moment with no real theme to our crafts or activities and I am struggling a little for ideas but never fear inspiration was just around the corner.
Todays craft came from a Nursery Rhyme and will hopefully be the first in a series of nursery rhyme themed posts

Jack jump over the candlestick!

You will need
Toilet paper roll or similar
Small box
White paper
Sticky Tape
Red and Yellow Tissue paper or similar

To Make
1 . Paint the small box this will be the candlestick holder - I am starting to wonder if black is her favourite colour as she often picks it especially for free art time2 .Let it dry
3 .Wrap the white paper around the toilet paper roll and use tape to secure this will be the candle4 . Scrunch some red and yellow tissue paper together and push it into the top of the candle don't push it to far in as this is the candle flame5 .Make a large X shaped slit in the top of the box and push your candle into it - this will keep the candle stable for the kids to jump over
6 .Put the candlestick down on the ground where there is plenty of room to run and jump. Take turns at jumping over the candlestick while reciting the nursery rhyme using your childs name

Neevah Jump over the Candlestick
Neevah had so much fun running and jumping (she must have jumped over that candlestick 20+ times today) that we played again when Liam woke up from his nap and Neevah thought it was hilarious when Mummy and Daddy had a turn to.

Unfortunately this photo looks more like Liam trying to sit on the candlestick. How I wish for a camera that took better action shots!

Inspiration from the Ooey Goey Lady who teamed up the idea of Jack be Nimble with jumping over candle sticks I hope the craft activity does the idea justice.
