Recipe holder

This is a fun craft to do, children will love getting their hands messy with this one, as well as being fun to make, it is also eco-friendly and a fun recycling project for kids to learn from.
Kids could also spend the day collecting 'junk' ice-cream sticks cleaning up the dam, but do remember to wash them off properly afterwards (the sticks, as well as your kid's hands).
It is also a great Mother's Day craft for kids to make. Ages 4 and up. Follow our easy step by step instructions to make your own recycled recipe holder.
