We can’t wait to take this pretty bag shopping with us. No one would ever guess it’s made from an old cereal box.

Your kids could have a couple of hours’ fun crafting a little shopper of their own. All it takes is an old brekkie packet, some paint, foam and pom poms to make it.

And if you’ve got a clever clogs at home, let them experiment with different colours and foam designs. They could try a polka dot pattern or even personalise their bag with their name.
