  • Great idea. I love how creative you can get if you put your mind to it, just using household items and/or rubbish. Toilet rolls are great to make those hand-held streamers or a kaleidoscope. My son and I were huge fans of making things and had a whole plastic tub full of stuff. Lots of fun was had.
