Pass it on
Many photocopiable materials are generously printed on A4 and can be easily reduced to fit two side by side on A4 , thus halving photocopying costs. The smaller sheets are also easier to stick into exercise books.

To save time, mess and expensive glue when making models, give each child a tiny individual glue pot. Use an empty photographic film case or an aspirin container. These are better than yogurt pots as they are smaller and have lids. Use half a drinking straw as an applicator.
