Here is probably one of my quickest TP Roll Crafts yet (well, this one and our TP Roll Doodle Owl) – both make the most of the toilet paper roll’s natural colour – so there is no painting or decorating required first. Just a snip and glue and a little pen and done: you have […]

There is something irresistible about setting up small world scenarios to let your kids explore, feel and let their imagination run away with them. I love nothing more, than when my kids PLAY with all their crafty creations. And believe you me, we do! […]
