- Try to save some of your recyclables such as cereal boxes, egg cartons, yoghurt containers, toilet rolls etc. Perfect for gluing paper or things like cotton wool onto (flour and water is a great glue stand-by), adding glitter to, colouring with texta's etc. My kid's recently made a miniature city out of toilet rolls, drawing on windows etc.
- I have a big drawer in the kitchen with good quality pencils, pastels and crayons that the kid's can help themselves with.
- When they get tired of their colouring books, we can find specific things to colour in on the internet. Luca loves tower pictures.
- Limit television viewing as kid's are more imaginative when they are able to get a little bored.
- For reluctant boy crafters try paper aeroplanes. There are lots of helpful websites available. Mine love to colour them in too.
- Provide staples and paper so they can write and illustrate their own story or activity books. Julia thought of this one on her own, and I remember doing this as a kid too. I had my own "series".
- This site has wonderful little buildings to download and cut out.
