Creative Mini Kit
Materials kit to make a cute ice cream parlour that can be decorated with marker pen. Cut the pre-printed figures out of the packaging. Add your own empty milk carton. Instructions included
In addition to the materials in the kit, you'll also need an empty milk carton, a craft knife and a pair of scissors. Start by colouring in the ice cream shop and the illustrations of ice creams, ice lollies coins on the inside of the packaging. Cut out the ice creams/lollies and glue them onto either side of a small lolly stick using double-sided tape. Cut the milk carton down to a height that matches the coloured-in ice cream parlour. Glue the ice cream parlour around the milk carton. You can also use the top of the milk carton to make the roof. Stick on the illustration of the striped roof with double-sided tape. With help from an adult, cut holes through the base of the milk carton to push the smaller lolly sticks through and attach the longer lolly sticks that hold the roof in place. Now add the ice creams/lollies to display in your shop and sell ice creams to your guests.
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: Lolly sticks in 2 different lengths, tape, 4 miniature markers and pattern sheets. Additional pattern sheets on the inside of the packaging.
