Recycled Crafts

Recycled crafts show kids how to make unique pieces of art by thinking outside of the box. Each eco-friendly recycled art project can be made with materials found around the house, or items that are usually thrown away. Egg cartons, old t-shirts, and broken jewelry can all turn into works of art with a little effort and imagination. The possibilities are endless! A great idea for Earth Day activities or weekend projects, recycled crafts help protect the environment, and save you money on art supplies, too!
