I love to be crafty, especially with the kids. Still, as a self proclaimed minimalist, I strive to keep my craft supplies at a minimum. I refuse to become a hoarder of old newspapers, pipe cleaners and toilet paper roles. I leave that to other crafty mothers.
Although I know the crafting hoarder community is quite large, only a small amount of people actually put these things to good use. They save toilet paper rolls until there is no where to sit in the house and then make robots, Christmas ornaments and binoculars. These little projects are sweet and a great way to get small children through a rainy day.
