Stamp Set for Emma last year. She loved stamping her name and I loved how easy it was to make with some wine corks and foam stickers.
Jelly Fish or any creature your little one can dream up.
Tin Box Monsters! They are great for holding the kids found treasures now.
Homemade Bell is a recycled yogurt container and has been a kick start to several fun games of imaginative play. It is surprising what a child can dream up with just a bell.
Recycled Party Hats are made from various recycled goods including small yogurt cups and berry baskets.
Bottle Top Magnets by just adding paint and googly eyes to a bottle top. It's fun to see them dry and transform into silly little creatures.
Got five minutes? Then you can make a super cute no-sew DIY Apron from an old pillowcase!
Emma thought of this one on her own! I loved the idea and she loved pretending to be working hard at her Egg Carton Computer!
These very cool and stylish bracelets were made from a plastic water bottle! Make your own Water Bottle Bracelet with just a few simple materials.
Who needs to buy pretend food? Just dig through those recycling bins! My kids always prefer the real stuff over the toys, so to make these packages kid durable I cover them in clear heavy duty packing tape. Check out my Pretend Play post for more details.
Are these cute or what? Oh the things you can do with a paper roll. The mini pom-poms on our Paper Roll Octopus were definitely the perfect finishing touch.
Hope you enjoyed a few of our favorite recycled crafts. It is a wonderful thing to give new life to something that would have just been tossed out. I love that my children can look at an old milk carton and see so much more.
Happy Earth Day!
