Crafting has got to be one of the cheapest and most rewarding activities you can with your children.
While it might not always been the easiest - or cleanest - option, a day spent creating with your little ones is so rewarding, especially when you see how proud your children are of their creations.
But what crafts should you make with your kids?
Craft... with everyday items
Kids are pretty easily pleased so you don't always have to fork out on expensive items to create a craft project - start by looking around your house. We have lots of ideas for amazing crafts you can make with items you'll probably usually throw away. Toilet rolls can be turned into various differet creations, as can egg boxes and cereal boxes. Let your imagination run riot!
Craft... with food
Craft doesn't just to have involve expensive materials, you can also get creative with food. The baking is one thing but the cake decorating is where you can really let your little ones' imagination run wild. Our cake decorating section has ideas for all ages - from the mess of sprinkles and glitter, to the more advance sugarcraft characters.
Crafting with kids is never going to be a relaxing experience, those little hands will get mess everywhere - but that's half the fun!
