When the girls came home from school I decided to do some crafts since we hadn't done any crafts for a while. I had a parcel through in the morning and there was an empty large cardboard box, so all afternoon I had been trying to think of ideas what I could do with the kids. In the end I decided the girls could make their own little toy house. They really enjoyed themselves.
This is so cheap to do. You don't have to use a party table cover, you could use wrapping paper or even let your child(ren) colour paper and then stick the paper around the cardboard box. This whole activity craft could only cost you less than £5. The box is free as you can use it from a parcel, the table cover/wrapping about £1, felt pens you can buy from shops around 45p and paper and sellotape you may get less than £1 together.
I got the girls to colour in 4 different papers for the floor of their homemade minion house. Although I don't think they understood what I said properly but they did a pretty good job. Whilst they coloured in I stuck the minion cover around the cardboard with selotape. There was a bit of cutting to make sure the minion pattern was on properly but it turned out ok in the end I guess. It's a simple craft activity to make but the girls loved it and love playing in their minion house that they made!
