Childrens papercraft club

I volunteered myself to run a craft club for year 2 children (6 to 7 years olds ) at my Son's school.
My first one is tomorrow afternoon after school and including my Son I have 12 children barering in mind that there are only 18 children in his class. I have saved the large tins from work( large bake bean tins ) and I have just covered them with paper so that the children can decorate them to use as ( bits and bobs storage ). I would like the children to take something they have made home every week .
Im hoping they wont be too bored, if anyone has any ideas or already runs a group I would love to know what the children prefer to do/enjoy doing most.
Im kinda looking forward to it, I think lol !

I help run a local Brownie pack and so long as it involves something messy they usually love it. Paper mache usually goes down a treat, they do hate anything sewing wise. Hope it helps xx

I run our craft club at school and agree with anything messy. I've had parents actually comment that they love the club because they couldn't cope with the mess at home ! ! !

A great site for inspiration is www.dltk-kids.com. Great ideas that you can easily adapt. We made the paper plate shelving unit (!) and the kids loved it.

a great place to get images for kids, they can paint, colour, collage or do whatever they want to them :)
