I know you can buy the puffed corn wotsit things that you get as packing in parcels for craft activities. So, since I've received a large number of them in the post - any suggestions as to what we can do with them? I don't even know what they're properly called, so have had no luck in googling.

My nephew has buckets of them, he generally uses them with his play farm as food/beds/ stuff to scoop with tractors. It is messy. Not sure about craft activities though, Pinterest?

Jumping in boxes of them is lots of fun! :D Sorry, I can't think of any crafts, either. I've always wanted to try floating a bunch of them in the bath, though.

At our local art cafe they do an activity called 'noodle doodle' where you stick those onto a pre-designed colouring page to make a 3D picture (so you stick the small circular end). We have one in the k-room of a sheep that B did. At the art cafe you just dip them in water and they stick - no idea if they are special craft ones or if you can do the same with normal ones? If not glue! :)
