I’ve rounded up my favourite 10 upcycled earth day crafts & activities for kids from last week’s #Pintorials linky. There are some fantastic ideas to upcycle and recycle junk into toys, games, crafts and gifts!
10 upcycled earth day crafts & activities for kids:
- Turn an old egg-box into a toadstool fairy garden at Arty Crafty Kids
- Make your own recycling game at In The Playroom
- Fun ideas for lights out hour activities at familydaystriedandtested
- Recycle packaging material to create Spring birds nests at TheMadHouse
- Make a rocket from an old film canister & cereal box at The Science Kiddo
- Upcycle baby blankets into adorable bunny softies at Twin Talk
- Recycle a large plastic milk bottle into a pig watering can at Hodge Podge Craft
- Turn a plastic drink bottle into a lighthouse at Sand In My Toes
- Re-use junk mail by making beautiful paper mache plates at Mosswood Connections
- Make a jet pack from plastic bottles and Pringles tubes at A Cowboy’s Life
This week I am linking up my tutorial on how to make a kids crafts gift box, which includes lots of links to free printables and fun art & craft ideas, plus what to include in a craft box for a preschooler.
If you’d like to link up to #Pintorials this week, here’s a reminder of the rules…
The #Pintorials Rules:
- Add the URL of your Pin or blog post below using the Linky. We will then add our favourites to our Pintorials Pinterest Board. It must be an instruction based post of some kind but this could be crafts, recipes or anything else. It can be old or new, but please only add each thing once.
- It is really helpful if you allow your posts’ images to be copied (even better if you have a ‘Pin it’ button, as this makes our task easier)! By linking up your post, you agree to us using at least one picture if your post is featured.
- Follow the Pintorials Pinterest Board. If you’d like to follow your hosts too that would be fabulous. We are ET Speaks From Home, Hodge Podge Craft, Crafts On Sea and TheBoyandMe.
- Visit at least 3 of the sites pinned below and pin them to one of your boards. If you’d like to say you’re visiting from #Pintorials (or Tweet about the linky) that would be marvellous. Of course you can pin more than that if you want!
- You don’t have to use the badge, but it would be great if you can, or if you’d give us a text link. The more people know about #Pintorials, the more can join in the party!
P.S. You can grab the blog badge here if you’d like to use it.
