We are waking up to the damage that the vast quantity of plastic we use is doing to our planet.
It is much easier to recycle these days, although the individual rules of some councils can make it a little confusing at times, but if you would like to try your hand at some home based reprocessing here are a few ideas to get you started.
Bag Dispenser from Craft Your Happiness
We can all be guilty of shoving our plastic bags in to various nooks and crannies around the house, going out with out a shopping bag and buying yet another bag for life.
Why not make a central storage area for your plastic bags so the whole family can easily find one when they need one?
Craft Your Happiness has two versions for you to choose from and don’t forget if you aren’t a fan of turquoise you can paint it another colour.
For information on how to make the turquoise version click here.
If you would like to know how to make the metallic version click here.
Fairy House from Filth Wizardry
This is a really cool idea to help you introduce the idea of reusing and repurposing to your kids.
As a child my Sindy was kitted out with furniture made from food packaging boxes and washed out yoghurt pots that I decorated myself and it was a lot of fun.
For more information visit Filth Wizardry.
If you enjoy doing activities and crafts with your little ones then it’s well worth having a dig around this site after you have checked out the fairy houses.
*BONUS* You can find out how to make wings for your mini dolls there too.
Self Watering Herb Garden from I Think We Could Be Friends.
Although bottles were actually bought to put this tutorial together I still love it for several reasons …
Firstly it fits our brief of reusing plastic bottles because we are going to use the ones we had already bought anyway but better than that you can even use the planter over and over again to grow further batches of herbs.
The other big plus for this idea is that it means that even if you don’t have a garden, or a usable yard, you can grow something with the kids because all you need is a small window cill or a patch on your worktop.
The children can get involved in picking the seeds and tasting the herbs when they have grown. Start with a few that taste very different from each other like mint, which you can chop and mix with marg on their potatoes, chives, very tasty chopped and added to cheese scones, and basil, which will go nicely in tomato pasta.

Plastic Bottle Broom from Secret Yumiverse
Here’s a clever idea.
I wonder if the brush would gather static and attract more dust?
I will have to try it and find out.
For a step by step picture tutorial on what to do to make this brush visit Secret Yumiverse.
Phone Charger Station from Make It Love it
This is a handy idea but use common sense here DO NOT leave your phone in this over night or when you leave the house as a charging phone can get quite hot.
If you would like to know more about how to make this visit Make It Love It.
Hanging Storage from Make It Love It
The same lady has expanded on the phone charger station idea and come up with this useful hanging storage area.
As an avid crafter I really fancy making one of these … although it might not be the best idea for hubby to see too much of my crafty stash on display.

Jewellery Stand from Epbot
This project has been completed with tools that we may not all have but you could still have a go with out filing the bottle bottoms in to flower shapes.
Take care to smooth off any sharp edges with some fine sand paper.
To have a look at how to make this unusual piece in more details visit Epbot.
Owl Vases/Tea Light Holders from Amazing Interior Design
Putting practical to one side for a moment here is an idea for a decorative piece which is very effective.
If you find a jam or pickle jar that fits inside you can use it as a vase.
It will also make a nice candle votive but a standard candle would not be safe in this plastic surround so remember to use battery operated tea lights. If you are in the UK you can get them from places like eBay, Wilkos, B&Q, Hobbycraft and highstreet discount shops and they have a good life span.

Bottle Bottom Snowflakes from Artesan
Although it is not Christmas and the website that features this project is not in English it is such an effective idea that I have included it any way. The photos included with the tutorial make it easy enough to see what to do.
You can buy the small metal jump rings from craft shops and also hardware stores like B&Q.
Use metallic acrylic paint to do your snowflake detail on the plastic bottle or simple white acrylic for an equally stunning result.
Take care if you have children as the edge where you have cut the bottom away from the bottle may have sharp bits.
Garden centres sell metal trees at Christmas time that would look fabulous with these snowflakes hanging from them but I particularly love the idea of hanging them from a wooden tree like the one in the picture.
Please note the original site is not in English but you can visit it here to see more photographs.
Wedding Dress by Michelle Brand from Ecouterre
Finally I will leave you with the results of an extra special recycling project.
Some of you might have made your own wedding dress, or had it made for you by a family member, but how many of you considered reusing your plastic bottles to get the job done?
Michelle Brand used a staggering number of bottle bases, lids and tags to construct the dress which has a sixteen foot train.
She specifically intended to show that art made from recycled items does not lack imagination or appeal.
You can see more photos of this breath taking creation at Ecouterre here.
Animals are a really important part of Christmas. From the very earliest reference of Camels and Donkeys carrying Jesus, to the more modern symbolism of Reindeer pulling Santa’s Sleigh, Christmas has always had an association with animals.
Other Christmas references include Doves which represent peace and love, as well as and Robins making their way into Christmas symbolism. Less symbolic, but no less important animals include Penguins, Polar Bears and others which live in wintry, snowy conditions.

Forget the spare change we used to receive when we were kids, a survey carried out by RoosterMoney this year found that children aged between 4 and 14 in 2016 received on average £180 in pocket money across the year. Whilst a separate study carried out by Childwise showed that boys receive £2.20 more pocket money a month than girls do. Showing that the gender pay gap seen in the UK starts earlier than you would think.
At the Children’s Room offices we decided to look into the topic of pocket money further, discussing it amongst ourselves, and chatting about it to our customers. Below are our thoughts, ramblings and findings on the topic.
The Pocket Money Minefield
Pocket money has always been a bit of a parenting minefield, mainly because children are pretty curious creatures who are ultra-receptive to advertising and marketing. Making them permanently interested in their next acquisition and where they can spend their pocket money as quickly as possible.
Taken back to basics however, it’s easy to understand the reasons why we should choose to give pocket money. It’s also easier than you think to determine how much pocket money your child should get, and what behaviour they need to display to qualify for pocket money.
Done right, pocket money can be a fantastic way of helping your child understand financial responsibilities, hard work and budgeting from a very young age. Furthermore, it is imperative to remember that the purpose of pocket money should be to teach your children about the value of money.
It’s important as a parent that you clearly define how your child can earn pocket money and what they can do to earn extra ‘bonus’ pocket money. As well as making it clear how they can lose pocket money through bad behaviour and messy rooms! Taking your child shopping with their money can also help them understand how to manage their own money, with higher value and more desirable items being accessible the longer your child has saved.
When to start giving pocket money?
Children are generally ready to understand the concept of pocket money when they are able to add and subtract quantities. A common age to start giving pocket money is at four years of age, where the average weekly pocket money totals £2.36 in the UK.
What should children have to do to earn pocket money?
Whilst our warehouse at Children’s Rooms isn’t full of all the kids within the family, there are a number of jobs around the home which your child can carry out to earn their pocket money. Whether your pocket money is given on a series of weekly tasks, or tasks completed earn a ‘bonus’ is entirely up to you.
Some of the most common tasks carried out for pocket money include gardening, cleaning the car washing the dishes and hoovering. Whilst other incentives could include completing homework on time, completing extracurricular education, looking after pets and tidying rooms.
If your child becomes a pocket money driven, hard worker, don’t worry! You can keep the amount of pocket money given small. It’s up to your child to negotiate a better deal as their awareness of money increases with age.
What do kids spend pocket money on and how much do they save?
This varies a lot from child to child, but as a sign of the times most pocket money is spent pretty quickly on apps, toys and of course sweets. Having said that, if you discuss a larger present or event which is taking place in the not too distant future, such as a toy release or a holiday – you will be surprised at your child’s saving ability.
When it comes to spending your child’s pocket money, it can be a good idea to have the child carry out the transaction themselves with your assistance. Most retail staff will enjoy this, and by ‘exchanging’ pocket money for items your child wants, valuable lessons are learnt.
Taking this idea further, you can always create a shop environment at home. Where you exchange goods with your child, helping them understand the process of buying.
What about birthday and Christmas money?
When children receive pocket money, suddenly money given at Christmas and Birthdays makes much more sense. In our opinion, children who get pocket money on a regular basis are more likely to save ‘special occasion’ money, not rush out and spend it. If your child takes to saving well, it’s well worth opening up a children’s saving account with them. Knowing that when they are 18, they will have a lump of money to help them with life’s expenses, such as buying and running a car.
What do we think?
We are in agreement that pocket money is a great way to give your child a sense of purpose and aspiration. Through teaching them that they can have anything they want in life, if they put the hard work in, you can instil a strong work ethic from a young age.
More importantly, what do you think of pocket money and if you do use it, how do you use it? If you don’t give your child pocket money, we would also love to hear your opinions on the matter.
Here at Children’s Rooms our aim is simple. To provide children and their parents with the largest range of top quality children’s bedding, children’s bedroom furniture and children’s bedroom accessories online, at unbeatable prices.

Children’s bedrooms are something we understand.
Only when you are a child can fantasies come true, and there’s no more fascinating subject than Dinosaurs. At some point in every kid’s life, they will experience an intense interest in Dinosaurs, during this period of time they typically live, breathe and sleep Dinosaurs. Whether it’s the challenge of pronouncing the names of dinosaurs, an interest in dinosaur’s often gruesome habits or the intrigue of fossils and bones – dinosaurs offer a fantastic way for your child to learn about natural history and biology. If you are lucky, your child will carry their fascination with dinosaurs throughout their teenager years and into adulthood – which can be a fantastic asset in driving academic results.
At Children’s Rooms, we stock and supply an incredibly wide range of Dinosaur Bedroom products, including a wide range of bedding and bedroom accessories. The aim of this collection is to inspire your child, whilst providing you with a cost effective number of products which allow you to either fully theme a bedroom, or simply accessorise it. Below, we will run through some of our most popular products in our Dinosaur range.
The obvious starting point when theming a bedroom, our dinosaur themed bedding ranges are incredibly popular with boys and girls of all ages. The biggest distinction within this range is the split between ‘friendly’ and ‘real’ dinosaurs. Bedding within this range is either themed with friendly dinosaur characters, or frankly terrifying dinosaurs complete with rows and rows of razor sharp teeth.
One of the bestselling duvets within the range is the T-Rex duvet, which is available in single, double and king size.
The perfect accompaniment to a Dinosaur bed, our range of Dinosaur Shaped Cushions prove popular with our bedding customers. Within this collection there are woolly mammoth cushions, dino battles cushions but without doubt, our bestselling cushion is the Barry Bronto Cushion from Hiccups.
Dinosaur Bean Bags
Perfect for parking children on, Bean Bags offer a versatile seating option which can be used across the home. As well as offering the perfect place for socialising, relaxing and reading in the bedroom, bean bags can quickly be brought into other areas of the house to add extra seating for little people.

Jurassic Park is depicted on this bean bag, which has numerous species of dinosaurs all over as well as the all-important Jurassic Park logo.
Providing the perfect focal point to any dinosaur themed bedroom, a pair of dinosaur curtains allow your child to enjoy a full dinosaur scene, every time the curtains are drawn. The bestselling dinosaur curtains within our range is the Dinosaur Facts Kids Curtains.
These curtains feature a full herd of dinosaurs, including Apatosaurus, a Raptorex, T-rex, Triceratops and a Stegosaurus. Each Dinosaur has a couple of facts written next to it, it’s not often curtains are educational!
Dinosaur Wall Stickers
If you choose the right wall art for a bedroom, the entire room can come alive. There’s no better way of achieving than this through some well-placed Dinosaur Wall Stickers. A huge amount of packs are available, so regardless if you want a Giant T-rex, ultra-realistic and detailed stickers or friendly cartoon dinosaurs, we can supply you with the right product.

We like to keep up with the latest trends here at CRHQ and with the new Superman film recently released we’ve tried our hardest (well our head buyers Kev and Dave did) to source up to date and relevant products to be ‘bang on trend’ as my teenagers tell me is the phrase I should use(?) We also have a whole load of other Superhero products, we’re not just about Superman here.
So, to start off we have this fabulous Spiderman City range of bedroom furnishings and bedroom accessories. The City bedding comes in single and double, the curtains are in both 54″ and 72″ drop, a super soft fleece blanket and a gorgeous character cushion. These are the ‘Ultimate Spiderman’ as that’s what it says printed on the bedding! The duvets sets measure 135 x 200 cms for the single and 200 x 200 cms for the double, matching pillowcases are included and you get one with a single and two with the double. The material is 100% microfibre which means they are durable and can be machine washed and of course the most famous spider in the world is heavily featured both swinging through the dark city using his super strength web and on his powerful motorbike which you can almost hear roaring the graphics are that good. The words ‘thwipp’ and ‘the ultimate spiderman’ appear on both the pillowcase and the bottom of the duvet cover. The co-ordinating curtains again are all about the web throwing with Spiderman in various poses against a web covered blue background and the same wording as on the duvet covers. The fleece blanket measures 120 x 150 cms and is lovely and soft and has the ultimate superhero in a single, large image this is made from 100% polyester and like most of our range can easily be maintained to keep it looking great. To top it all off there is the ‘city’ cushion, shaped as Spiderman’s head which measures 40 cm in height x 27 cm width. To add extra theming to your Spidey fans bedroom we also have lightshades, lamps, stickers and bins, in fact everything you’d need and a little bit more.
The Avengers ‘Team’ 3D bedding set which includes 3D glasses, from Marvel Comics, feature the superhero’s Thor, Captain America, Hulk and Iron Man in a fabulous panel print of all four of them in fighting mode with a matching pillowcase and the words ‘Avengers Assemble’ printed near the bottom of the cover – this is a single bed set and will fit any standard single size bed. For double beds we have a bright and vibrant rotary patterned bed set featuring the same four heros with two co-ordinating pillowcases. Matching curtains are again in a rotary pattern and each curtain measures 66″ x 72″ are made from 100% polyester and have pencil pleat tops. All other accessories can be found here. Marvel comics – the greatest publisher of Superhero’s – have a fabulous bedding set which are the brightest and most lively duvets I have probably ever seen. With a mix of their comic’s covers highlighting some of their biggest stars with X-Men, the Fantastic Four, Thor, Hulk and many, many more. These are available in both a single and double bed set which includes a duvet cover and pillowcase (two pillowcases with the double).
All these are selling really, really quickly.
When she’s not quite teenager and yet too old for character bedding, what do you do? She doesn’t particularly want the pale pink with flowers and cuteness yet isn’t ready for One Direction or The Avengers what is the other choice? Maybe you have a budding celebrity or future star under your roof? Well, we think we may have it here in this Superstar complete bed set, it’s called complete because it comes with everything you need and we mean everything! Made from a stunning, shiny polyester pink fabric and with stars in various colours including yellow, lilac and purple and ‘Superstar’ ‘Talented’ ‘Famous’ and ‘Celebrity’ embroidered over them and with the odd sequin dotted here and there for added star effect.
Included in this package are 1 x single duvet cover, 1 x pillowcase, 1 x quilted bedrunner which measures 50cm x 150cm, 1 x cushion cover which is a generous 40cm x 40cm and a ready filled decorative cushion in the shape of a star! All that is available for just £14.95 which I think we can all agree is a huge bargain. We don’t have many of these left in stock at the moment and we’re not sure when we’ll be getting any more in, if we do that is!!
So, if she is the type who likes to sing into her hairbrush (let’s face it who doesn’t) and could be a contender for ‘The Voice’ or any of the TV talent shows then maybe this will start her on the road to ‘Superstar’ status.

When adding a theme to a childs bedroom some people will automatically think of characters like Mickey and Minnie Mouse, Peppa Pig or Monsters Inc., the list is endless, but there are other themes for a little ones bedroom to make it unique for them. Parents sometimes think that as their child isn’t too keen on any particular characters they are left with little choice except pink for a girl or blue for a boy. Well, we don’t think like that at Childrens Rooms, here we like to provide you and your kids with everything they could ever dream of which is why we go the extra mile.
