a great way to use those many cans that we all throw into the bin... just drill holes, thread the string and stick on some toes and bobs your uncle they are made. I added some pipe to the rope for the handles. kids had fun trying to walk in them.

On Monday we did the simplest egg shaker possible. We used a kinder surprise egg container and filled it with a little bit of rice. Then put the egg back together and wrapped a bit of sticker around the seal(leftover white sticker from printer again cut with pinking shears) and prettied it up with some spotty tape I found at the cheapy store. Kids loved it.

A very simple version of binoculars for the kids to make. Just too tubes painted red, taped together and then decorated with sticker(more of the printer offcuts) and then holes drilled for the string. Easy but lots of fun both while being made and afterwards playing with them. Here's a couple of shots of the creations in use...
