About Me

Welcome to Crafty Kids at Home

Thanks so much for stopping by. I’m Nicola, a busy mummy to 3 kids Liam (9), Freddie (7) and Bella (4).  I am passionate about nurturing young imaginations through art and play. I set up this blog in 2015 to share our ideas and help inspire others.

What makes us different from other Kids Activity Blogs is that all of our activities have been tried and tested by my own kids and many of them have been done by all 3 of my kids together. Doing arts and crafts activities with multi aged children is not without its challenges, but with good preparation and the right projects, it can be done.

Below you will find a few of our favourite post to get you started over here. If something catches your interest then just click on the photograph for more information.

Our Life So Far:

  • I grew up on a farm in rural Yorkshire, before heading for the bright lights of Manchester.
  • After studying for a degree in BSc(HONS) Information Management, I worked as a News Research Librarian at the BBC for 4 years.
  • Then I meet my husband and departed for London and a new job as a Legal Researcher as The Law Society.
  • We headed back up to my husbands native Preston a couple of years later, where we married and had our first 2 children.
  • In 2010 we moved across the water to our dream home by the sea in Co. Wicklow, Ireland…

As a child I loved doing arts and crafts activities with my mum, helping my granny with baking, playing dress up with my sister and reading and writing stories. I couldn’t wait to re-create some of these happy memories with my own children.

This blog began as “Multicraftingmuumy” and charted our playing, making, creating, painting and messy play adventures. It has now grown into so much more and I hope it will become a regular source of inspiration for you and your children.
