Kbake,

Making crafts out of recyclables is an efficient, low-cost way to conserve materials.  It is great that you are conscious of the environment and green living.

Here is one activity that would allow you and your children the freedom to incorporate many different materials.  

“Build A Castle, and Explore First Grade Geometry” is an activity that allows you to use any reusable materials on hand to build a castle.  This activity also allows you and your child the creativity to build as you like.

I hope that you find this activity enjoyable.  Best of luck with your craft making!

Best wishes,

Hayley
