Toys are broken or looking a little worn and its time for something new to be added to the rooms. Pricey huh! Christmas is around the corner and its time to do all those lovely activities again…. More glitter anyone? Do you ever feel that the cost is creeping up every time you place an order for something new? Here, I share with you 4 ways in which you maybe able to keep costs down, and places to look so you can use resources more efficiently. Charity Shops It's quite an excitable experience looking for bargains in a charity shop. Loose parts and everyday curious items from around the home and lots of other goodies are hiding away in charity shops for next to nothing! How much money are you spending on books? Never discard popping into shops when you’re out and about - you never know what gem you may find for your nursery! When big branded shops re-brand their products Shops like ASDA, TESCO and in particular WILKO every now and again decide its time to change the labels on the paint bottles (or other resources) and the only way to make room for the new ones is sell the old ones for a ridiculous price! Always be on the look out when on the high street or shopping down the relevant isles, as when this type of re-branding happens, you’re going to save a fortune for your nursery on creative resources in particular! Pinterest It's every practitioners' safe haven! Struggling for a creative idea, go on Pinterest! Christmas is coming, what shall we do? Pinterest! The best thing about Pinterest is not just the ideas they give you, but sometimes, the resources to make them are so simple, you’ve probably got them already and not even noticed, just recycle more. Red Ted Art A bit similar to Pinterest, a great website that sources ideas for you to do with young children.
