Making the most of free play craft supplies

August 23, 2015

At the beginning of the summer we were kindly gifted a wonderful selection of craft supplies to #keepthekidsbusy from Wilko. With a selection of make your own activities and free play craft supplies Roo and Tigger have had fun making the different sets. Taking some of the free craft supplies to Granny’s house it has proved useful as the Cumbrian weather has been less than kind to them with rain spoiling play equalling lots of time for crafting fun.

Making the most of free play craft supplies

A group of items on a table

I have to admit that I’m someone who likes to follow instructions on how to complete a crafting masterpiece rather than just going with the flow. I’m somewhat lacking in imagination when it comes to looking at a selection of pipe cleaners, feathers, coloured lollipop sticks etc. Thankfully my children seem to have more imagination that I do and happily reach for the glue, paint and craft supplies to make masterpieces.

For those of you who are like me and struggle when it comes to craft ideas thankfully my fellow bloggers come to our rescue…
