Recycle Crafts Ideas For Kids – Quick, Easy And Fun To Do

If you want recycle craft ideas for kids which will keep them entertained for hours keep reading. Listed here are tips and ideas which are easy to do, free to do and will guaranteed to have the feel good factor.
The added benefits of recycling crafts for kids are, the time you spends creating something is much more enjoyable than trying to entertain kids. The time flies, the kids build self esteem and confidence. When our minds are focused on creating, making and doing we experience flow moments, the thinking and the doing become one. We balance our left and right brains.

Recycle Craft Ideas:

Tetra Pack:

Make bird houses, bird feeders and small dolls houses from old tetra packs. Rinse, dry, cut out side parts for windows and doors. Paint. Hang out side in trees or on fences to allow the birds to feed and enter. Also make cars and trucks by adding lids as wheels.

Old yogurt containers and empty egg cartons can be use to grow seeds, kids love to grow flowers and vegetables. This is an ideal solution if you do not have a garden for the children. You probably did this when you were a child, cut up egg cartons and make spiders by adding pipe cleaners for legs.

Recycle Cardboard Boxes:

Did you ever notice no matter how many toys Santa brings they are always more fascinated with the box. Well now you can take advantage of that. Recycle cardboard boxes by turning them in to castles, forts, hideaway, dens, planes, buses, think out side the box, paint and imagination go a long way. I bet the kids will spend more time playing with their castle they created from scratch than a tent or playhouse bought in a store.

Paper Mache:

Put those old phone books to good use, get the kids to tear them up in to tiny pieces, soak in a four and water paste. To make the flour and water paste use 2 tbsp of flour to 2 cups of water, a thick consistency. When the paper is nicely soaked, make it in to a shape using a mould. Cover bowls with cling film to use as a mould for a fruit bowl. Use a inflated balloon which you can burst with the paper mache mould is dry. Cover the mould with the paper mache and allow to dry. Kids love making masks which they can paint, decorate and wear after.

Start making recycle crafts today, you will be amazed at how much fun you will have. Making the kids happy is an added bonus.
