Once you’ve got your use out of your paper bags, don’t opt to throw them straight in to the recycling bin. Instead, if they’re clean, why not try these fun craft ideas over the weekend to keep the kids entertained!

Paper bags can be used for a huge variety of things and arts and crafts is something the family can all do together.

There's nothing better than a weekend spent at a spa and total relaxation and happy thoughts is a way of life to me. It's lucky I love cats really with a name like mine! Happily married with my three fur babies to keep us company.
