Children in Malawi are very resourceful and creative. They don’t have access to toy shops so have to make their own entertainment. They often collect scraps and rubbish to make some amazing toys which provide hours of fun. These include cars made out of drink cans and cardboard boxes and animals made out of plastic scraps.

Can you make a toy that moves and has a practical function? Use some recycled materials found around your home and see what you can create. Share your creations on Instagram or Facebook, and don’t forget to tag us so we can see what you made.
