Many ToucanLearn activities use items that you'll find around the home, but keep a supply of craft items and you'll always find there's something for the kids to do! You don't need to go out and buy hordes of craft materials from specialist shops, over time you can accumulate craft materials from materials that you would otherwise be throwing away. Magazines, newspapers and catalogs provide a source of pictures for collage and card making; plastic cartons, tubs, cardboard boxes and tubes become terrific building blocks for creating models; water can be used for water play; old clothes can be used for scrap materials. You should keep an assortment of paper and card, and crayons and pencils, child safe glue and child safety scissors, but there is little more that you need to buy to create an Aladdin's cave of craft items that your children will simply love! Log into ToucanLearn and look at the 'Craft Essentials' where you'll find recipes for play dough, edible paints, edible glue and more!
