Activity for children: make an animal

What can you create from recycling items in your home?

We challenge you to make an animal of your choice only using recycled items you find around the house.

Think: toilet roll tubes, wrappers, plastic containers, odd socks (sock puppets!), paper mache…

Take a picture of your creation and email it to with your first name and age, and we’ll post the best ones here on our blog!

Here’s an idea to help you start thinking… a butterfly made from an old toilet roll tube and cuttings from magazines.
