School holidays are coming up in Australia so this is an ideal activity to keep the kids amused. Some of the Churches and the local Library usually hold some kind of holiday activities for the children, so this would be a great idea to include in the program. There are several recipes for home made paints which would make the project even safer for little ones.

This is a super cool and easy project for kids to make. Great for summer fun or a camp project for a group kid function to do. I love that you can use recycled things so you are teaching about recycling too. All kids love to paint,use paste and googly eyes so this is great. I think I will cover the toilet rolls in leftover cardstock when I do ours. Thanks
