Do you share my LOVE of recycled kid's crafts?
Using recycled products to make kid's crafts means 3 things:
1) It's cheaper. I could spend so much money on really amazing craft supplies. But, sticking with the basics and supplementing with recycled materials can save a lot of money.
2) It's convenient. It's much easier to grab something from the recycle bin vs. dragging the kids to the craft store. I love going to the craft store alone, but with kids, it's a whole other story.
3) It's earth friendly. Obviously, it's better for the environment to make use of something we already have instead of buying new material.
Today, I'm featuring three ideas for recycled art from some of my favorite bloggers.
Jelly Fish Jelly comes up with some of the coolest recycled crafts and she's doing it again with this Plastic Bottle Easter Basket. You also have to check out this blog post to see her quick and easy Paper Plate Easter Bunny that doubles as a treat holder.
Not only is Pam full of Party & Practical Tips, but her daughter, Kara, seems to be following in her footsteps too. In this blog post, Kara teaches us how to turn recycle toilet paper tubes into colorful spring flowers.
The next time you acquire some thin pieces of Styrofoam save them for a rainy day art project. Putti Prapancha teaches us how to make a mono-print here. You can also see Quirky Momma's version of Styrofoam print making here. I took a print making course in college and really enjoyed it, but this is something I haven't done with my kids yet. Maybe we'll try it this weekend.
