Bumper guide to school holiday craft ideas
Keeping the kids busy during the school holidays is not always easy, especially with this heat wave making it too hot sometimes to want to beyond the freezer for your next ice lolly. Fear not though, parents, we've got you covered not just with our guide to things to do in the summer break, but also with this bumper guide to school holiday craft ideas!
First let's kick off our school holiday craft guide with a dig in the recycling bin for all the discarded toilet rolls and kitchen rolls, and then get busy turning them into unicorns, butterflies, pirates, cars and house.
Next, keep your little minions busy with this super cute minion bookmark craft by One Perfect Day Blog, and when you're done, why not snuggle down for a minion movie fest?

How about a guide to boredom busting craft ideas? Surely that will float your little one's crafty boat? We especially love those monster puppets pictured above.
