Recycling Crafts: How to Recycle Containers for Creative, Economical Fun With Kids!

Keeping kids entertained can be expensive! I've found creative and economical ways to keep my little one engaged for a long time (and for little money). Have fun recycling your product containers! Here's how:

  • Cover things like oatmeal canisters and tissue boxes with duct tape, paper or felt and let kids decorate.
  • Use them to store miscellaneous toys, or even create puppets. The puppet picture above was created out of empty coffee containers, and another small container on top! 

Have fun being creative.
