How to make corking Cork Characters!

Awwww...we loved making a whole host of these Recycled Cork Characters! From The 3 Little Pigs and Aliens Love Underpants to Superheroes, Farm animals, Princesses, Butterflies, Bees and a full set of Nativity Cork Characters! It is fair to say we got a little carried away making these!

Recycled Cardboard Christmas Town Display Scene

This lovely recycled cardboard Christmas Town scene looks great in a window or as part of a display. We re-used a large cardboard box for this large scene but you could use smaller boxes and piece them together.

Stop Motion Animation Winter Scene

We love creating small world scenes, but why not add an extra level of learning by incorporating ICT into the mix? Create your own basic stop motion animation. You can do this with Lego set ups or any small world scene that you create in any theme.

Papier Mache Dragon Egg

Papier Mache is a great medium to work with, we use it quite a lot and have made Caves, Volcanoes, and Dragon and Dinosaur eggs. This time, we have made a Dragon Egg, although it can be easily re-purposed to a Dinosaur Egg.

Recycled Toilet Roll Tube Ninja Turtles

Toilet roll tubes are ideal for simple crafts. From characters to Christmas decorations and crackers to car garages and castles - recycling these everyday household items is a great way to start crafting. Here, we made Ninja Turtles!

Great Fire of London – Story in a Shoe Box

Creating a small world in a shoe box is a lovely, manageable craft project for children. This simple but effective story in a shoe box - depicting The Great Fire of London was done for my 8yr olds Creative Homework Project for school.
