Creative Mini Kit, Toilet Roll Bee
Kit for making a bouncing bee with moving wings.
Cut up the packaging to make the bee's wings and add your own empty toilet roll.
The idea behind this kit/material set is to inspire children to 'get creative with recycling' and reuse empty packaging, both from their home (such as toilet rolls, milk cartons, egg boxes etc.) and the set's own packaging, and use their creativity and imaginations to transform the 'waste' into fun figures.
Through the creative process and subsequent play, this kit provides the perfect opportunity to talk and learn about how we can recycle. The children learn that by being creative and using your imagination, you can transform ordinary household waste and basic crafting materials into new things, including fantastic figures, toys and so on. This inspires children to see things in new ways and continue to reuse other items creatively rather than throwing them away.
Contents: Pipe cleaners, pom-poms, cotton string, metal clips, EVA foam self-adhesive circles, self-adhesive wiggly eyes, plastic beads and glitter glue. Pattern sheet on the inside of the packaging.
