We have always crafted from our recycling bin…its one of those essentials for a thrifty parent!
Milk bottles, silver foil, egg boxes and cereal packets have all found their way into our arts and crafts projects. I was a little sceptical about the eco craft Go Create sets from Tesco.
What could they add to make our recycling crafting better?
Quite a lot it would seem.
Inside the Milk Bottle Jumbos kit was everything you could need to make 4 wonderful elephants you just needed 4 used milk bottles and some PVA glue.
The shapes of felt were pre-cut and there were clear directions about where to put sequins and what to do in what order. I have to say it worked beautifully and we are absolutely delighted with the results.
At just £3.50 a kit the fact we can make 4 elephants form this does make it good value and the convenience is wonderful. It also encourage recycling which can only be a VERY GOOD IDEA.
There are lots of packs in the range and I think presenting one of these packs with the right recycling material and pot of glue makes a lovely and inexpensive birthday gift.
