I tend to pile up the kiddy artwork in the craft cupboard.
When I can no longer handle the piles falling out of the cupboard every time I open the door, I know I need to take action.
This action usually means brainstorming ways to reuse the artwork.
And that is how these bird puppets came about.
A pile of kiddy artwork. A never-ending supply of paper tubes (Possibly my favourite recyclable to hoard.)
And a new gig contributing to The Craft Train website.
This is the first project I have contributed to The Craft Train, and I can’t wait to bring you plenty more.
For the full how-to on making these bird puppets, you can click here for the tutorial.

I also like to use old art pieces for collage. You can find some simple collage projects for kids here.
