    Part of each day, I'm using it for some adult-supported creative activities that we've planned.
    For the other part of each day, when I've time tabled it for child initiated creative activities, the table is empty. Children help themselves to whatever they want from the little storage boxes and the bag of junk modelling stuff that are always in and on the cuboard next to the table.
    Resources include materials such as:
    • scrap paper (sugar paper, coloured photocopier paper, tissue paper, shiny paper)
    • ribbon
    • pipe cleaners
    • pom poms and sequins (I only ever put a few of these at a time in the boxes, as the children go crazy with them)
    • cardboard wheels
    • coloured lolly sticks
    • old boxes, pots, tubs, plastic bottles
    • bottle tops
    • corks
    • bits of fabric and vivelle
    Resources also include tools such as:
    • scissors (ordinary, left-handed, shaped eg to cut wavy or zig zag lines)
    • glue
    • masking tape
    • ribbler
    • split pins
