#1: Recycled Milk Jug Catch

If your family is like mine, you have some type of milk or juice jug in your recycling bin right now. While there are tons of great milk jug crafts you can make with your children, my most recent favorite is to turn a couple of milk jugs into a sport that can be played outside, at the park or the beach – a catch game. This project is super simple, a few cuts of the jug with a pair of scissors and a bean bag or ball and you have everything you need for endless fun. The best part, this is a game that children can play together and is fun enough that parents will want to play too.

#2: Recycled Sock Animals

Every household has that drawer with the odd socks without a mate. My son always jokes about how the washer literally eats the socks. Those socks are perfect for making sock animals. Along with a few other craft and sewing supplies, your child can make any type of creature from a sock. It’s a fun activity that my own son has done many times making everything from dogs to caterpillars.

#3: Mini Recycled Glitter Canvases

My son has an unbelievable amount of those small plastic animals in his bedroom. This mini recycled glitter canvas craft is perfect for using those tiny animals. You can use any type of recycled material for the canvas and the rest of the materials you probably already have in your craft closet. This project is great for both boys and girls because the options for colors and animals is endless. Your child could make several of these for a collage piece to hang in their bedroom.
