Why not make your own miniature circus using some every day items?

What you'll need: 

  • An clean empty egg box
  • Paints or felt tip pens
  • Stick on gems
  • Lollipop or cocktail sticks

What to do: 

  • Cut out the pods from the eggs box - you can use as many pods as you like. Be careful though as they are a bit fiddly to cut. 
  • Paint your pods in bright colouring circus colours, such as red and yellows stripes
  • Make a hole in the top of you pod so you can slot in your lollipop or cocktail stick - this will be the flag poles for your circus tent
  • Stick gems all over your flag poles and tents to make them look glamorous and showtastic

You can make as many as you like - why not try to make some animals from the egg box pods too, all you'd need is different coloured paints, some googly eyes to stick on and some card to make trunks, arms and legs!
