More Up-cycled Crafts for Kids
Making up-cycled crafts for kids is such a great things for kids to experience. Not only does it teach them about re-using rather than throwing away, but it also teaches them to think out of the box. We have been doing this for quite a while, and I see my oldest beginning to think creatively before something is thrown away. The other day I was sticking something in the recycling bin, and said, “Don’t get rid of that, we can make a great castle out of that.” She was right, and I have the materials stored to do that as one of our next crafts. In fact, I have a drawer at home reserved for things to use rather than throw away. Some things I haven’t figured out what to do with yet. I’m waiting for inspiration. However, I’ll have the materials when I need them. The other huge benefit is that it really cuts down on the price of the crafts you do with your kids. I wanted to give you some more recycled craft ideas today, so here you have it.
