Craft Corner

Looking for fun activities and crafts for kids during school holidays, rainy afternoons, or times when kids are bored?

Craft Corner has lots of easy to make indoor and outdoor projects for all the family.  Have fun learning new skills. Crafts don't need lots of expensive equipment, most can be done with stuff you already have in the cupboards. Make something different to hang on the wall, put on a shelf, wear or brighten up the garden.

Roll up your sleeves, get out the scissors, glitter and glue and make stuff together.
