All the Craft Supplies You Will Need for Lockdown Activities

We get you- your kids have been searching and have found 3 crafts they want to make- origami fish, robot arm and leggy bugs. The table is covered with paper and you’re relishing the thought of an hour’s peace from the “Mum, I’m bored, Mum, I’m hungry, Mum there’s nothing to do” on loop.

The kids faces are glowing with excitement as you read out the list of materials needed. NOOOOOOOOO, you have no googly eyes OR pipe cleaners. Plus the recycling rubbish was collected that morning,along with all the roll holders, cardboard boxes and plastic bottles.
