Who doesn’t love the 80’s and 90’s, everything was big, bold, and utterly glamorous. I was born in the 80’s and grew up in the 90’s, and have some fond memories of iconic kids gadgets. For our arts and crafts this week we have decided to look back on some of these.

These are super easy to make and not really a messy activity! – A weepul is a small, spherical, fluffy toy, with large, plastic googly eyes and no limbs. They usually have large paper feet, with a sticky bottom.
