We’re at week 30 already and last week we had 48 great posts linked up. We love reading all your tutorials each week, thanks to everyone for taking part. This week I want to share some of the upcycled crafts and activities that were linked up. Junk modelling and reusing materials is a great message to give to kids, and a very thrifty way to keep them entertained! So today I’m sharing crafts that can be completed using items from around your home or recycling bin – cardboard, foil, bottle tops and more.

If you try something new, come back and link it up with us here on Tuesday Tutorials!

11 recycled / upcycled crafts for kids. I love Junkmodelling - what cool ideas, and a great way to reuse old materials!Here are my junk modelling crafts features for this week! Click through each one for the full instructions.

For anyone who is new to our Tuesday Tutorials linky – Welcome! All you need to do is add your posts to the linky at the bottom of the post and they will all be shown across all four host blogs and pinned to our Pintorials group board. We welcome all bloggers and love to see new faces joining in every week so go ahead and add your posts! No need to be shy, we can’t wait to see them!

Every week all four co hosts choose a few posts to feature on our blogs along with the next weeks linky, each with a different theme of our choice. As the number of people linking up each week grows, we hope to increase this and may be able to feature your submissions into separate themed round up posts. I’m pleased this week to have expanded to four featured posts for the sensory play theme. Tell your blogging friends and let’s help to showcase more of your lovely crafts and tutorials each week!

Be sure to visit Eileen, Kate and Gude’s blogs to see the features they have chosen for this week.

I hope you liked this weeks features as much as I do! I’m looking forward to seeing what you all have to share with us this week!

A Quick Reminder of Our Rules & Guidelines

    • Link up a few of your suitable posts each week. These can be old or new – it doesn’t have to be something from within that week, but something with a “tutorial” aspect and something pinnable. We particularly welcome crafts (kids or grown ups) and recipes but all tutorials are welcome.
    • Please follow the Pintorials board.
    • And if you could follow the hosts that would be appreciated – We are AnnaKateGude, and Eileen
    • Try to visit at least 3 of the blogs that have linked up and pin something to your own boards
    • Why not comment and let them know you came by from the #Pintorials linky – perhaps they will come and follow you on Pinterest!
    • You don’t have to use the badge below, but if you want to spread the word about the linky then please do or give us a text link or a mention in your linkys list if you prefer. The more people know about the #Pintorials linky, the more can join in and the more pinning we get to do

We can’t wait to see the fantastic and creative tutorials you have to share with us this week!
