Hands up who remembers chatterboxes from their childhood? Well my kids came home from school this week asking me to make them a chatterbox and I had to look up how to make them as it’s been awhile so I thought I’d share.

They are so simple to make, all you need is a piece of A4 paper and some scissors.

Watch the YouTube video for easy to follow visual instructions:

Did you used to make chatterboxes?

  • These were such fun as a child – do children still like them? They certainly have no patience with what we used to call ‘Cat’s cradle’.
