Always keep a box of scraps in the house that you can add bits and pieces to as you come across them.
Don’t throw away that old shirt or jumper! Cut it up into rags and throw in the craft box. Keep old empty egg boxes and food packaging to make junk models or treasure boxes!
Old jewellery can be recycled to decorate home-made gift cards, or to add to rag dolls.
Use the ideas in our FREE Messy Tots Craft book for lots of ideas, and why not pick up one of our favourite children’s craft books for lots of creative ideas, and hours of fun crafting with your little ones
