Stop! Don’t throw those empty oatmeal containers and old magazines into the recycling bin! They may look like trash, but with a few basic art supplies, a little imagination, and a dash of creativity, your child can repurpose those would-be throwaways into a one-of-a-kind Father's Day cookie jar. This project provides a hands-on lesson in the value of recycling household items and creating homemade gifts and gives your child the a chance to practice her basic literacy skills, creative design, and build her fine motor skills. The end result is a thoughtful and useful gift that's sure to show Dad how special he is long after that last cookie has been gobbled up. For an extra special surprise, try filling it with a batch of necktie cookies!
