If you have children, then you will surely be throwing away a lot of juice boxes weekly. But did you know you can recycle these boxes to make awesome crafts?
The most popular craft I came across was the juice box train. Every week you can add more boxes to it. If you like, you can cover the boxes with construction paper (with the help of white glue) and draw the doors and windows. You can even go a step further and glue half a toilet paper roll on the roof of the first train to create the engine.
Another idea is making a boat from a juice box. I can't promise you it will float very well...but you can make a sail using felt or paper and a piece of stick.
