One of my favourite memories of early childhood was the craft activities my Mum would set up for my little brother and me.
Using random items found around the house – think Froot Loops, shaving cream, food colouring and pipe cleaners – we created artwork to go on the fridge, explored different textures and conducted messy science experiments.
But as many parents know, the biggest obstacle in arts and crafts is gathering the various materials required. (Don’t you just wish you could raid Play School’s craft supplies?!)
Melbourne mum Jess Kelemen has found a solution to your crafting woes, launching kids arts and crafts subscription service Make & Create.
With two children who were nagging to be entertained, Jess discovered that organising craft projects for her kids often involved buying obscure, pricey products, only to be used once for a 30-minute activity.
