We’re crafting with our favourite material once again – toilet rolls! It’s our favourite material because it is always readily available and we get to reuse and recycle something that would otherwise be thrown away. It is never too early to teach little ones the importance of recycling and looking after our environment.
Reading about the didgeridoo provided a wonderful opportunity to learn more about Indigenous Australian people and another culture. We crafted our mini didgeridoo using the inner tube of a baking paper roll. This is a great way to recycle and reuse something that would otherwise be thrown away!
Is your precocious little one a Shakespeare in the making? Do they spout prose at the drop of a hat? Challenge their growing vocabulary with a DIY Human Thesaurus Game that rewards their wordy ways. Just gather up some friends and family and settle down for some creative, out-of-the-box thinking.
This DIY UFO Spaceship craft is brilliant for encouraging creative thought. All the painting and gluing is a great fine motor skill workout – skills that are essential for learning to write. We also enjoyed a lesson in shapes as we identified the different shapes in our craft.
