10 Festive Winter Recycling Craft Projects For Kids
Kids love to do crafts. Using recycled materials to make crafts is a fun way to teach kids about the benefits of recycling. We’ve created a list of some really creative ways to use recycled items. Your kids will enjoy making these cute art projects and creating colourful decorations for the winter season:
1. Toilet Paper Roll Snowflakes
Do you use a lot of toilet paper and paper towels in your household? If so... you’ve probably got a lot of cardboard tubes lying around waiting to be recycled. Why not put them to better use and turn them into beautiful snowflakes instead?https://onelittleproject.com/paper-roll-snowflakes/
Much like cardboard boxes, egg cartons are a very versatile craft-friendly recyclable material. Cut out individual sections to create mini reindeer, or keep the whole thing intact if your kids prefer to make a reindeer sleigh. The possibilities are (almost) endless!https://www.craftymorning.com/egg-carton-reindeer-craft-kids/
While popsicle sticks are recyclable, they’re not as common to be kept around in large quantities (unless you’re a big fan of fudgesicles!). You might need to buy the popsicle sticks from an arts and crafts store to make this one.https://www.firefliesandmudpies.com/wooden-sled-ornament/
This recycling project is ideal for schools. Mostly because households don’t have access to commercial recycling bins that would be able to collect the amount of milk jugs required to build this. A community recycling project like this is guaranteed to get kids excited about recycling!https://diyprojects.ideas2live4.com/2016/01/09/how-to-build-a-milk-jug-igloo/______________________________________________________________
