The Big Book of 100 Little Activities

big book of 100 little activities

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)
