I have a background in Art, Design and Illustration. I studied a Masters in Illustration at Camberwell, London. I have been working at my local Primary school for the last 2 years, focusing on craft and art for Reception school children aged 4-5 years. I get joy from watching these little people developing their skill set through craft activities. I often create innovative ideas to allow the children to express themselves through a range of media including paper, paints, mixed media etc

30 colourful peg tags - 3 colour options - Editable ANIMAL name tags for pegs

This is a selection of 30 editable name tags for pegs. Each design has 3 colour ways to choose from in order to suit the child, so 90 in total! The theme is 'animals' and each one has wellington boots on and is holding a water bottle. I have designed each tag as a JPG in order for you to download the ones you want separately to either Photoshop or Word and insert the child's name onto the design before printing. Each tag is the same size at approximately 11cm by 9cm and can go 2 up on a A4 sheet of paper. You can either write the childrens names on by hand or edit the tags in Photoshop or Word.

Animal headbands - colour, cute and staple and wear!

Animal headbands - colour, cute and staple and wear!

This is a great activity for busy little hands! Once you have photocopied these designs onto A4 card in B&W the kids can choose the animal that they prefer. Colouring in skills can be developed and scissor skills as they cut round their animal. Using two A3 strips of card (Approx 1inch wide) let the kids try and staple their animal head to one end of the strip, then the end of the other strip. Then the strips can be measured round the childs head by the adult to secure it in place. These animal headbands were used in a Christmas nativity whole schole assemble at our school, however, they are quite versitile and could be incorporated into several different topics e.g. Noah's Ark, role playing etc.
