Want to turn your Crusha bottle into a cool craft with the kids? Follow the step by step instructions or watch the video and make a Cat Money Box for your little ones to keep their pennies and pounds in! It's quick, easy and loads of fun! #CrushaCreation

You will need:

  • A plastic bottle
  • 1 A4 purple coloured paper
  • 1 A4 pink coloured paper
  • 3 pipecleaners
  • 2 wiggly eyes
  • A pencil
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • 4 pom poms
  • Black marker pen
  • Craft knife

Step 1:

Take all the wrapping off the bottle

Step 2:

Cut 1 sheet of paper in half by folding it in 2 long way

Step 3:

 Wrap 1 half of that paper around your plastic bottle and secure with glue

Step 4:

On the other half of paper, draw and cut out a tail and ears. Make sure you leave a bit of space at the bottom of each item for glue

Step 5:

Glue the tail to the bottom of the bottle on a different colour paper. Draw 2 triangles that are smaller in size than ears and glue them on to ears. Glue the ears to the bottle (just above the main body)

Step 6:

Glue the wiggly eyes just below the ears

Step 7:

Wrap pipecleaners around the neck of the bottle (just below of where the lid screws). Cross and bend to secure the pipecleaners in place.

Step 8:

Draw and colour in a triangle on the lid for the nose

Step 9:

Glue 4 pom poms to make feet for your cat

Step 10:

Draw an outline of where you want your coins to go and cut it out with a craft knife. Be very careful if you are using a kitchen knife!

Step 11:

Tidy up with scissors

Nat has been brilliant

Nat has been brilliant. We have had two packs of the most amazing crafts delivered to our door during lockdown. We have had paints, canvases, pipe cleaners all sorts of fun crafts with ideas to have fun with. Things that we had never heard of or seen before such as noodle doodles. We can’t wait to come to one of your sessions when things get back to normal more.

The live online creative class

The live online creative class is not only fun, relaxed and educational it has also given my girls something to look forward to weekly and a masterpiece or three to show and be proud of afterward. Both my girls have taken the techniques used from the classes to create more art through out the week. I would highly recommend the Creation Station live online classes. *****

We find Creation station brilliant

We find Creation station brilliant! A wide range of activities using all kinds of materials (all supplied to!) with a different theme each week. Very entertaining for my 6 year old to let their creative side shine! The host is very friendly and always patient with the children. The sessions usually last for around 12 weeks so great value for an after school club! My little one always looks forward to it! We are currently attending online creation station during lockdown and it’s fantastic! All Materials supplied to our door with super easy instructions to follow (all organised by our fantastic host Jude) It’s kept our routine which is very important for little people. We love it!!

Thank you Vicky ?

I order these letters quite regularly…good price, speedy delivery.

I order these letters quite regularly but noticed they had gone up in price from last time, so I looked directly at your site. I was surprised to see that to purchase directly from you was cheaper, so that it what I did. The speed of delivery was excellent and I will always come straight to you in future for my craft supplies.
