Tinkering Projects for Kids - Washi Tape and Loose Parts - An Everyday StoryJack built an ‘Alien Road Map’ from washi tape and recyclables. Art Projects for Kids - Plaster and Washi Tape Sculptures - An Everyday StorySarah made a plaster and washi tape sculpture.Art Projects for Kids - Paper People - An Everyday StoryAnd drew a little girl “whose not happy all the time and that’s ok”.


I buy our washi tape in bulk from ZartArt (there’s also a huge range on Amazon). Our Click Blocks are from Modern Teaching Aids. They are wonderful wooden blocks that click together like Duplo. They also come in beautiful natural tones. The basket for the Click Blocks is from IKEA.

Sarah’s used Quick Dry Plaster Rolls, which I also bought from Modern Teaching Aids, for her sculpture. They’re out of stock at the moment but I can highly recommend them when they come back in stock.
