27 Tin Can Crafts & Activities For Kids!
Since I’ve always got so many tin cans on-hand at all times, I decided that we might as well put them to good use as crafts and activities!
My kids love to do all sorts of crazy things with tin cans: bowling, crafts, stacking, and painting. As much as I like to let them take the lead, sometimes I also like to give them some structure and direction.
Setting up a creative craft or hands-on activity with our tin cans is perfect! Once we’ve run through our “go-to” tin can activities or crafts, I tend to get stuck for ideas.
To prevent that stuck feeling later, I scoured the web and pulled together 27 of my very favorite upcycled tin can crafts and activities for kids.
