Hi! Welcome to another Tasteful Tuesday! I’ve also got a great guest post for you today with a cute kids craft!
Have you entered the SMILEBOOKS giveaway? The post has had lots of hits, but not too many entries… come on people… free photo books???They make fabulous gifts for teachers, parents and grandparents!
There will not be any features today…. Friday I will be posting: 25 fabulous things to Eat, Make, Do and Craft for the holidays. This will include features from last weeks party and this week as well. And… since next Tuesday is Christmas I will not be hosting a link party, I will be celebrating Christmas with my family, as I pray you will be as well! And…. onto the main events…

Hello, I’m Jenna and I’m visiting today from MumCentral.co.uk to share some simple card making ideas for toddlers and pre-schoolers!

  • Do some lovely festive printing onto the card using the stampers/cookie cutters
  • Once dry use some PVA glue to stick the small peg onto the front of the card
  • Finally peg your child’s decoration onto the front of the card
