Crafting with Reusables
Sometimes the best thing you can do for the environment is to reuse an object that’s outlived its use. Reusing reduces waste and saves energy because when you craft with what you have, you don’t need to drive to the craft store! By giving things a second life, we can reduce our overall consumption.
Here are three kid-friendly craft projects that turn waste into works of art!
- Paper Roll Town
Collect empty cardboard tubes from toilet paper and kitchen towels to make a totally tubular town!
- Jar Lid Banjos
Glass jars are easy to reuse or recycle, but what about their lids? Give them a second life with this adorably musical craft project!
- Tin Can Birdfeeder
A birdfeeder is a helpful reminder that we share the planet with many beautiful creatures. Reuse an empty coffee can (or similar container) to make a big, beautiful bird buffet this Earth Day for the birds in your neighborhood!
