This flower light bulb craft is a great way to spend a rainy weekend, and also a terrific way to teach kids about recycling and reusing everyday objects. Explain to your child that there’s more than one way to recycle one thing into something else. You can turn used soda bottles into a string of flower lights for spring!
Yesterday I showed you how to make a Glue Stick Man out of your recycled glue sticks. Today I’m going to continue showing you how to make toy figures out of recycled materials. In this post I’m going to show you how to make Cardboard Little People Figures. Just simply use pieces of used cardboard boxes. This craft is a great way to recycle those cardboard boxes that you would normally throw away. These Cardboard Little People Figures are fun to make…. almost as much fun as they will be to play with. So, let’s get started.
With all the crafts that I do I go through a lot of glue sticks. I always hate the idea of throwing them away…. I always try to find crafts that I can make out of recycled items. And, glue sticks are no exception. Here is a great craft you can make with your used glue sticks. Today I’m going to show you how to make a Glue Stick Man out of your recycled glue sticks. You will see what a great feeling you get from making something out of recycled materials. Plus, you get a very cool toy man.
Earth Day will be here in just a couple of weeks. In honor of Earth Day I thought I would scour the internet looking for cool ideas for Earth Day crafts. All of the crafts that I found and have listed here are made from recycled materials. Earth Day is a special day to celebrate the Earth and to increase awareness and appreciation of the Earth’s natural environment. And, I think making crafts from recycled materials such as the ones found here is a great way to teach children about recycling and the importance of doing that to help save our Earth. So, without further ado….
This is a great project for kids who are interested in nature and bugs. This is an easy project for kids of any age and you get to watch ants build an underground city…so it is pretty cool. This ant farm has no openings, so you don’t have to worry about the ants escaping. You can open the jar outside to feed the ants, and then close it back up and bring it inside to observe.
