Minimalist living seems to be very popular, but there is good reason to hang on to some things! Try some of these upcycled kids craft ideas using things that were headed for the trash bin.
We all have clothing with imperfections, plastic bags, or partial skeins of yarn tucked away. Use those once unwanted items to create something new and unique.
Recycle old t-shirts to make t-shirt yarn. This “yarn” can be used in many of the crafts in this collection.
To make t-shirt yarn, you only need a few old, colorful t-shirts and a pair of sharp scissors. A pair of scissors used only for fabric will allow you to make quick, clean cuts.
Create your own decorative pom-poms with leftover yarn or your new t-shirt yarn. You’ll need a firm piece of cardboard and very sharp scissors to cut through your yarn.
Practice weaving using t-shirt yarn and an empty plastic water bottle for the base.
On a hot, sunny day, leave crayons out on a sturdy paper surface. When they are hot and melted, use them to paint any way you wish!
