How to Make a Pet Stick Insect

Now plenty of you have shared with us your Little Trekkers’ passion for collecting sticks at every given opportunity. The problem is, getting them to throw them away!

There comes a time in every pair of socks life when they find themselves at the back of the sock draw.

How to Make Welly Plant Pots

A customer once told us that she was buying some wellies for the sole purpose of using them as a desk tidy for her pens and pencils.

How To Build A Willow Den

How To Build A Willow Den

Building a Living Willow Den is easier than it looks and loads of fun. It will last for years, continually changes, and fits in naturally in the garden. Children love playing in willow structures as they feel like a ‘proper den’ rather than a shop bought ‘play house’. Schools and early years’ settings focus on creating natural play settings and Willow Dens are a perfect addition. A great way for children to enjoy being outdoors throughout the year.
