10 RECYCLED CRAFTS FOR KIDS YOU CAN MAKE FROM STUFF AROUND THE HOUSE

10 Recycled Crafts for Kids You Can Make From Stuff Around the House

Chances are, you've got a ton of stuff lying around the house that can be used to mark the beginning of a great arts and crafts afternoon for the kids. There's no need to head to the arts supply store and spend a lot of money on boxes of packaged artsy items--not when you've got empty paper towel rolls, just-finished milk cartons, a drawer full of plasticware from your local Thai restaurant, and a cardboard egg carton waiting in the recycle bin. 

We've rounded up some of the very best ideas for recycled crafts for kids. So, think outside the box (pun intended), plant your little ones at the kitchen table, and let them go to town on your old magazines to create a cool wrist bracelet. Who knows, maybe mom will end up with a sweet kid-made gift! 

Flip through the slideshow above to see all of the fun and crafty art project ideas we've rounded up. And remember, homemade says it best.
