Creative activities and handmade goodies for kids at Minieco

With half term nearly here the hunt is on for ideas on how to keep our kids happy and occupied during the time off school.  These days, there's the added challenge of finding activities which won't break the bank or mean resorting to games or entertainment which involve your children spending large amounts of time in a zombie state in front of some form of computerised game or television screen!

Prepare to be amazed and captivated though at!  I challenge anyone to find a more beautiful website, bursting with inexpensive and innovatively creative things for your children to make and then play with, all explained and displayed with truly stunning pictures.  There is an abundance of choice of easy things to make and do for boys and girls, appealing to little ones and older children alike.  I honestly doubt you'll ever need to look elsewhere for creative and eco-friendly ideas.  I would happily be at the front of the voting queue, to label this as the UK's very best website of its type!

Just a few of the inspirational projects you'll find include: magic potions, homemade playdough, invisible ink, a kitchen roll kaleidoscope, a twig boat, a fishing game, homemade coloured pavement chalk, various musical instruments and ice cube painting.  There are so many fantastic things to make, so it's been very hard choosing just a few to mention and depict here!  

I regularly recommend Minieco's website to many of our customers and friends and I'm sure that as soon as you have a look, you'll be hooked!  You can subscribe to Minieco’s blog so that you don't miss any of the great ideas regularly shared by the hugely talented creator of the Minieco blog.  

Envisage Minieco as a metaphorical vaccination against the "I'm bored" complaint from your kids over this half term! Help to make it a happy, creative holiday for friends and family too, by spreading the word though the Facebook and Twitter buttons below!
