Trash can be treasure

play_cereal_box2The best play ideas often don’t cost a penny.

An empty cereal box? That isn’t rubbish, it’s genius! Brightly printed on the outside, dark and grey on the inside – how amazing is that?

And look: you can put a play figure in it and now it’s a house!

An empty plastic bottle? It’s not headed for the bin: it’s a space rocket headed for the moon. Or with a little dry rice or pasta, it’s a shaker.

You could have a look at the Make & Bake section for more crafty ideas.
