  1. Looks like a great book; toilet rolls, corks and egg cartons are always kept for our crafting box. Oh, and boxes, any size or shape, they can make sooo many different things.

  3. my son loves helping me upcycle empty jars for battery operated tea lights he also like making robots out of old boxes

  4. My kids love to recycle toilet rolls as there is so many different things you can make out of them an they are always in the home

  5. Sounds like a good book to have. I sometimes have moments where I can’t think of anything interesting to make.

    Our latest recycled creation was a bottle rocket ship made from a lucozade bottle and a cereal box x

  6. We recycle mainly cards, the beginning and end of the tinfoil roll and the cardboard inners of loo rolls and paper towels.

  7. Oh this looks great! We use so so many different things when crafting. At the moment we’re trying not to use too many eggs boxes or loo rolls because they are collecting at school, but empty milk cartons (4 pinters) make a fab craft tool! Last month Reuben made a giant igloo with his class! It was epic! H x

  8. My kids loved to recycle at home so that they could ‘Get Crafty’? Everything that could be Recyclable, from Milk and Juice Cartonsand Bottles, Egg Boxes to Cereal Boxes, Toilet Roll Tubes to Kitchen Roll, Newspapers, Ribbons, and Bows. Now I have Two Grandsons, I’m just as Bad for Recycled Craft. I do love Inspiration, your book ‘Get Crafty’ Fun, Creative Crafts for Children could do, as one of my Grandsons is under the age of two. I also have an Indian ringneck parrot and he doesn’t like to be left out of Recycled Crafts, so I save up Recyclable materials to make him a Toy or Two.

  9. What a fantastic book, with great ideas.
    My 4 year old daughter loves to recycle and is always coming up with ideas of what we can make out of everything from kitchen towel holders to baked beans cans!

  15. My children collect empty toilet rolls, yoghurt pots, coffee jars, soda bottles, cardboard boxes, wrapping paper. Pretty much anything they can use for painting, sticking, glueing, building. More gets put in their craft tub than gets put in the recycling bin!!
