Happy Friday! We thought we’d share a bit more about our latest craft book, The Big Book of 100 Little Activities.

The book is aimed to occupy and entertain little ones. There are 100 projects ranging from spur of the moments crafts and mini projects to do over a few days.

To celebrate the release of the book, we’re hoping to get littles ones (and bigger ones) crafting. We’ve running a little competition over on our Instagram alongside the lovely Oh Creative Day. She’s our Australian craft buddy! To win a copy of the book, all your need to do is share a post showing how you use random bits and pieces around the house to create craft projects. Be sure to tag us @littlebuttondiaries and @ohcreativeday using the hashtag #lbdmakes #thiscreativeday. (Full T&Cs at the bottom of this post)

Easy Sew Knight’s Tabard

My Little Button is a tiny bit massively into knights at the moment. We went to Norwich Castle at the start of the year and since then she’s been all about rescuing her brother from dragons whilst riding on our kitchen mop like a horse. We were going to her friend’s princess party recently and she was adamant she wanted to be a knight. I admired her boldness, and wouldn’t squash that into a princess dress, so I made her this tabard.
