We love handprint crafts because you get to enjoy the activity with your kids and create a keepsake at the same time. For this reason handprint crafts make a great gift for Mother's Day, Father's Day, Teacher Appreciation Week, or to give to other favorite family and friends!
We have eight gorgeous handcraft painting ideas just added to the website. Have some messy fun creating a lion, giraffe, buttefly, bumble bee, sunflower, peacock, apple tree or autumn tree, then display them proudly!

This is a nice simple site for learning and practising basic words in other languages (English, Spanish, German and French available) – we had fun practising French colours and numbers.
Activity Village also has a Learning Languages section, with puzzles, printables and posters for early learning in French, German, Spanish, Dutch, Russian and Italian!
Teacher Appreciation Week is coming up in the US (May 7th-11th) and anyone looking for inspiration will find plenty at our updated Teacher Appreciation pages (those not in the US might like to have a look for some early ideas for the year end!)
