Inspiration Gallery

There are so many ways to play using basic household items. Here’s a bit of inspiration for your next arts and crafts session!

Start by cutting out the owl shapes and some eyes, and make a whole in the top of each owl so you can hang them up.

You’ll also need to collect up the twigs that will be stuck to the owls.

Cover the owl cut-outs in glue so you can stick in the twigs you collected earlier.

When the glue has dried and the twigs are secure, add the eyes and draw on the beak.

Your lovely owls are ready to be hung up wherever you’d like!

Balloons and foam make a brilliant sensory play.

There are plenty of ways you can turn household items into scary, funny monster drawings!

Cut some holes in a cardboard box just big for your little ones to fit their arms through. Fill the box with small, tactile objects – like pasta shells – and have your children try to guess what they are.

Cutting toilet roll ends into thin strands make a great chunky ‘paint brush’, which will let you create some bright splashes of colour with a unique look.

Household items can make plenty of fun, safe playtime equipment like paints and dough. Just follow these simple recipes to get started!
