Lovely huh? There's still time to knock one together if you happen to have a thousand spools handy. Places like Reverse Garbage in Sydney often sell things like this for next to nothing. If you aren't in Sydney they have an online store where you can order lots of great craft bits and pieces for kids in small or bulk quantities at super cheap prices and have them delivered to your door anywhere in Australia. How good is that!??
I love trips to RG at Marrickville. The kids get so excited rumaging through all the interesting stuff. You never know what you'll find! And that's half the fun!
