Children's Eco-Crafts

Yesterday I looked through my son's room for items that he made from recycled items. Here are two of the many eco-crafts that he has made over the years. The fish one is a metal bottle cap. He put a round blue paper in it and a small plastic fish bone. Then I filled it with resin. We made a lot of these together one night. They make good game board pieces, ornaments, jewelry, and embellishments.

This project my son found on the Webkinz website. It's a milk truck made out of a milk jug. He used 2 dowel sticks, cardboard, and clay to make the wheels. He also used clay on the top and the handle. A Webkinz can easily fit inside to deliver milk. He no longer plays with it, but his little brother just loves it. Its nice when home made toys get passed along to be loved again.

What kinds of environmentally friendly things will you and your kids, grandkids, or other family members be making for Earth Day next month?
