Additional Craft Information:

For instance, you're travelling to see the Cheddar Gorge; is it part of a package holiday or even a day trip? Well any of these types of holidays worth their salt aim to inform their clients; so you could say that the coach itself is an educational resource, as well as the driver and the blue-blazered tour guide. The latter will be speaking to the travellers over a loudspeaker making sure that no one misses even one single piece of information. They will point out the goats grazing the National Trust side of the gorge and tell you that sheep are soon to be introduced on the Marquis of Bath's side. You will no doubt be informed in awed tones of the skeleton called Cheddar Man found there in 1903 and estimated to be 9000 years old and you may even be transported back to the melting glaciers of one and half million years ago by reams of geological facts. Your imagination may even be so well developed that you find yourself shivering as you 'see' the permafrost seeping through the limestone or until your mind joins the icy waters eddying and swirling as it forms the very caves you now look upon in wonder.

DIY Craft Essential #1: Washi tape

You'd be surprised at how many things you can do, and how many tutorials out there are obsessed, with washi tape. The versatile paper tape with adorable designs makes great wall decor, paper crafts or can even spruce up your furniture.

DIY Craft Essential #2: Needle nose pliers

This tiny tool is great for small projects. "This is not only your go­-to tool for opening and closing jump rings, bending wire, and securing crimp beads and ribbon ends, but pliers are also great for cutting through jewelry chain and wire," said Morin.

DIY Craft Essential #3: X-acto knife

If you love stationary crafts, jewelry crafts or any delicate work -- you'll need a proper cutting tool. Not all scissors can do the job. "Remember first using scissors and cutting along the dotted lines in grade school?" Morin asked. "Hopefully, you’re attempting more challenging crafts as an adults."

DIY Craft Essential #4: Spray paint

Acrylic paints are also great for any DIY starter kit. However, if you're looking for a perfect, seamless finish on your furniture, art and home decor -- make some space to spray. It doesn't hurt to keep some cans in your favorite colors (as long as you store them properly).

Yes, our human guides can be thought of as educational theme resources in themselves but most likely you travellers will also be carrying smaller versions in the form of paper travel guides or even specialist books such as a naturalist's guide to British flora. This will enable you, once you have stepped on to the grassy slopes, to spot the Cheddar Pink or the Little Robin Geranium. You'll be able to point out with authority the difference between the grey whitebeam and the cheddar whitebeam and you will be able to stand under either of these and nod sagely, as if you had always known this fact. Those more interested in species that move of their own accord will pull out their own educational theme resources in the form of the RSPB Wildlife of Britain, accompanied perhaps by Collin's Complete British Wildlife, just to be absolutely sure. Then they will be certain to spot any of a dozen species rarely seen elsewhere such as yellow-necked mice, the small pearl-bordered fritillary butterfly or perhaps the grasshopper warbler.

The entire point to be realized from this is that the world is full of educational theme resources and if, as children, we were encouraged to develop our imagination through exploring our inner minds in play, we would certainly see learning as fun when we become adults. These resources are definitely not just earnest toys for young children or expensive equipment for older students but range from toys that produce more imaginative play, books for all ages and everything else that helps us learn and develop into well rounded individuals and students of the world who can see the entire universe as their university.

DIY Craft Essential #5: Painter's tape

Painter's tape is "perfect for for attempting the c​olor block trend," said Morin. Plus, you'll need something to keep your projects neat and tidy, no matter what type of paints you use.

DIY Craft Essential #6: Hot glue gun

There are some tools that are too functional not to have. "This is one DIY workhorse tool you shouldn't do without," said Morin. Hot melt glue works on a variety of materials.
