When the weather's too wet to play outside and you've exhausted your baking repertoire, we've got the crafty ideas you need to while away a few hours with the little ones. And what's more, you don't need an extensive craft kit to get started!

Getting creative with a few bits and pieces you'll find around your house is a super simple, super fun way to keep the children occupied and out of mischief. All you need to create these two bug-tastic crafts is some empty loo roll inner tubes, paper plates, and whatever colourful cards, paints, crayons or felt tips you can lay your hands on. 

Whether you opt for a spot of cutting-and-sticking, a full on glitter extraordinaire, or simply a spot of colouring-in, all it takes is a little imagination and you'll have yourself quite the collection of homemade critters in no time. Find out more below, and happy crafting!

(Remember to make sure an adult does any tricking cutting out, and children are supervised)
