Teach your kids to recycle and use their creativity. Make it! by Jane Bull has craft instructions that utilize materials we tend to throw away or simply send to recycling. You can turn unwanted papers into boxes and airplanes or cool paper maché containers, and you can turn your junk mail into paper maché beads. You can take an empty cereal box and some old magazines and create a collage and frame. Your empty plastic water bottles can turn into many things, including a suncatcher. Fabric scraps become puppets and rugs–the possibilities are endless!
