    I am soon to be starting a new job and part of this involves planning and delivering craft workshops for primary school aged children. Does anyone know any good websites that give ideas and inspiration? Or if any of you are teachers or have children that age are there any crafting activities you've done together that worked really well?

    I've done crafting with secondary age kids, adults and toddlers but never this age group before.

    http://www.activityvillage.co.uk/ is where I get some ideas for Rhiannon from. She does loads of fun stuff at after school club too, but I need to be at home to remember what she has done.

    I made owls and octopi with Rhiannon from loo rolls.

    Thank you you lovely lovely people Plenty there to plough through and having a quick glance just now think there are some new things I can try with Alex too - will definitely have to make the loo roll octopus with him as I think he'd love that.

    Now its autumn , get the children to be creative with leaves. Make an autumn collage perhaps, or do leaf print painting. In year 1 Rhiannon did something on Andy Goldsworthy, who uses natural materials in his art.

    Or a Bonfire night collage, that's on the horizon, maybe some of those folded paper whatsits where you cut bits out and it makes a chain, is this a "kids corner" where they can put stuff up on the wall? That always drives them to do the thinking, especially if you have a theme for them to aim at? We always used to make masks etc with serial boxes,, polystyrene egg boxes, wool, the whole shebang..great fun...also makes them recycling aware.

    Just don't start them out on papercutting unless they have good insurance and a big bag of plasters
