This is one cool way to reuse old tin cans.

Just add a face, pipe cleaner arms, funny little clown feet and you’re pretty much good to go.

Take an empty carton of eggs and turn it into something cute.

That’s what Creative Green Living did and they came up with this not so creepy looking caterpillar.

Do you think you’re kids will enjoy making their very own recycled caterpillar? Yeah. I think they will too.

This used to be a pair of old jeans. Now it’s one awesome recycled craft idea for kids.

Crafts By Amanda walks you through the steps of creating an eye catching set of ‘beads’ that you or your kids can wear as a necklace or a bracelet.

Instead of throwing out those used wooden spoons, turn them into pretty little fashionista dolls.

Dress them in cute paper outfits and give them a personality all of their own. That’s exactly what Love from Ginger did.
