Reduce, reuse and recycle with these 36 creative ides for upcycled kids crafts!
I don’t think it’s possible to be a hands-on mom without saving anything and everything imaginable. Ever since I started doing crafts and activities with Henry, we’ve been hoarding recyclables.
Henry actually has his own “recycling center” now. I love seeing him take ownership of recycling and upcycling!
Now, whenever he adds something to his stash, he’ll tell me what he’d like to do with it later. So cool!
So, what is worth saving? Because, let’s face it, not everything is worth saving.
36 Upcycled Kids Crafts & Activities to Make!
What can be upcycled and put to good use for the kids?
Always check your recycled items for danger and really gross dirtiness before you start crafting. Cans with roughed up edges, jars with cracks in them, or really gross paper products can all safely stay in your recycling bin.
We took a good look at our recycling bin – and checked with some of our favorite bloggers – for items that are usually in there. And we found tons of things that can be turned into 36 recycled kids crafts and activities!
What are you and your family going to upcycle first?
It’s not just limited to these! I’m collecting more and more ways to create upcycled kids crafts on Pinterest. It’s neverending!
