Fun Ideas for Kids to Make with Paper and Card

Kids Diy Piggy Money Bank

A simple plastic bottle can be transformed into a kids piggy bank - or if pigs aren't their favourite why not use little brown ears for a bear or grey for a little mouse!

Diy Bookmarks

DIY Colourful Bookmarks

These would be perfect to make with our range of super colourful card! The full instructions to follow are found here.

Toilet Paper Roll Crafts Monsters

Loo Roll Monsters

These fun little monsters are made using old toilet rolls - in the tutorial which you can find here, they paint the loo rolls, but you could also use coloured card to make these without the messy paint, just by rolling little tubes of card and attaching with a little tape. These googly eyes and pipe cleaners can be found in lots of craft shops and even stored like pound land.
