Tesco recently sent us through a couple of the eco-friendly craft kits available in their newly-launched Go Create range. The fun kits contain everything you need, except for common household items that would otherwise probably end up thrown away or recycled. They have been designed to be simple enough for kids of all ages to get involved in and they only cost £3.50 so they're great for keeping in the cupboard for a wet weekend.
We received two kits, one for a Snack Tube Princess Desk Tidy which has been put aside for now because we didn't have any empty snack tubes, and this one for Milk Bottle Jumbos, which upcycles empty plastic milk bottles.
The kits contain a variety of crafting materials so, even if you don't have a well-stocked crafting cupboard, you can still come up with a creation that Mister Maker would be proud of.
I couldn't see how a milk bottle would be turned into an elephant but as soon as Sophie cut the top off the bottle, I could instantly see an elephant shape. I'd never have thought of it by myself and we thought it was ingenious.
I left Sophie to get on with it and after lots of sticking, here is what her jumbo looked like.
She was very proud of it and I can see why - it looks great !
Sophie has actually followed in my footsteps and started her own blog (a bilingual one no less !) so if you want to see more step-by-step photos of how she made her milk bottle jumbo, head on over to her blogpost here. I'm sure she'd be over the moon if you left her some comments.
