Every household in America probably contains fruits and vegetables in tin cans. Repurpose your empty cans and make a few tin can crafts with your little ones.
Tin cans are a very easy item to come by. They will hold up well for all sorts of craft projects.
If you recycle, you may already have a few tin cans on hand right in your recycle bin. If not, save a few cans after cooking a meal.
For a really fun outdoor or large-space activity, try the snowman tin can toss. You’ll need 10 tin cans, paint, a small ball or beanbag, and a few creative pairs of hands!
Paint the cans white, then add faces and lots of personality to your snowmen. When they’re dry, stack the cans and have your child toss the ball to knock them down.
For a craft that involves more skill, create your own beautiful Valentine’s Day lanterns. This craft requires some wire, a drill, hammer, nail, and needle-nose pliers.
Try tin can crafts; you’ll need at least three cans that nest for many of these crafts, so you may have to collect them over time.
