MAD Blog Awards Finalist


Thank you so much, all you lovely readers of Play & Learn Every Day, thank you for all of your support in getting me to the finals of the MAD Blog Awards in the Best Craft Blog Category.  I am in absolute shock to be in this position and just feeling so very grateful to everyone who nominated me to get this far.


I started Play & Learn Every Day in order to share the crafts and activities that we do at home, so that other parents could see how easy it is to do educational activities that kids will have lots of fun doing.  The crafts that you find here are not picture perfect and polished, they are truly made by Ethan and Ivy, with only a little bit of help from me.  One of our favourites is this Gold at the End of the Rainbow craft, which I've still got up on a shelf on display.  Ethan was able to make this from start to finish, and was so very proud of the finished product.

We also love making crafts that we can play with, rather than just leaving them sitting on a shelf.  This Fire Truck Box craft was perfect for holding all of the party bags for Ethan's fire fighter themed birthday party and then came home with us and was used for imaginative play!  We also make lots of crafts like these Bee and Ladybird Shakers that use recycled materials and can be played with by the kids any time for making beautiful music.

If you would like to vote in the MAD Blog Awards I would of course appreciate your vote and maybe you'll find some other fantastic blogs to read as well.
