Upcycling a McDonald’s serving sheet

Since there was an interest in my crafts, specifically my upcycled magnets in my earlier post about what I do during my Me-Time, I thought I’d share more upcycling projects with you.

Actually, I’ve been meaning to do this post in a while but I’ve been so tied up with other commitments. Anyhow, here’s a simple upcycling project. Though it can’t be replicated anymore for the time being because this isn’t in stores anymore, I’m still posting it because I think we can all develop an eye for what can be upcycled instead of just chucking stuff away.

This was a sheet of paper on a serving tray at McD during the Minion craze in June.

Ironically the guy who likes to throw stuff away (aka my hubby) was the one who salvaged this sheet home. He passed it to me when he got home and said, “I think you can use this to make something for the kids”. Imagine my delight that finally my upcycling efforts have rubbed off him.

Do you know what I made with it eventually?

Well, I decided that I’d make a simple small noticeboard of sorts for the kids! I cut out a sheet of drawing paper to size, stuck it on the sheet of paper then laminated it and punched the corners.

Tada! That was simple enough, wasn’t it? The kids decided that I should write their tasks on it, and even though my little one can’t read so well yet, they were found to check out their minion notice board at the fridge every day!

I hope you like this and upcycle stuff alongside me! Share with me your projects if you do!

The Way Back Home tickets giveaway

Oliver Jeffers’s books are all the rage in our home now and this production – The Way Back Home – couldn’t have come at a better time!

If you’re not familiar with Oliver Jeffers, he is the award-winning author of How To Catch A Star and Lost and Found. We find his other titles like Up and Down and Stuck very entertaining and hilarious too.

The Way Back Home is an inter-galactic tale about a little boy seeking adventure –

One day a boy finds a plane in his cupboard. He flies his plane higher and higher until he runs out of petrol and lands on the moon. He is frightened, lost and alone until a passing Martian lands there too! Who is the strange alien? Can they be friends? And how will they find their way back home?

This exciting new production for families and young children has been created by the team behind the hit shows, Don’t Let The Pigeon Drive The Bus and The Night Before Christmas.
