I really enjoy using items from around the home and recycling them into playthings for the toddler twosome and i know many others do too so i am going to try and do a weekly feature on thrifty activities… for art and craft, for toddler play and fun, for things to wear or eat or even when enjoying the outside and all it has too offer!
Do you enjoy making fun for your kids with items you have recycled from around the house? I’d love to read about your ideas! I hope this thrifty series will inspire some readers to realise that you don’t need to spend a lot of money buying fancy craft items and tools to have fun with children…let’s look around the house and see what we can find!
You might like to visit my group Pinterest page Frugal Family Fun for more inspiration and ideas and i am on the lookout for more collaborators! I only started this one a few weeks ago but already there are some great ideas.
A Toddler’s World is another of my group boards and you will find lots of thrifty ideas for play with toddlers there too! Let me know if there is something you think i should see and pin!
I hope you give the squirt bottles a go (you can use food colouring instead of edicol if you don’t have it!) Send me a link in the comments if your children end up messier than mine….it would be a challenge !
