Fun craft ideas: make your favourite book characters
For a fun, creative and cheap activity, why not transform a potato or wooden spoon into your favourite book character? Looking for a magical way to reuse a shoebox or jam jar? Try making a Harry Potter scene in a box or A Very Hungry Caterpillar in a jar. From Zog to Paddington, classic fairytales to more recent releases, we’ve put together a gallery of some of our favourites to give you inspiration.
