When my kids were young, they LOVED arts and crafts. I was always trying to find eco friendly craft projects for them to do and kept the art closet well stocked. To this day, I still have tin cans, bottle caps, scraps of material and an assortment of other ‘used’ items in there in case a class project comes up. Or for those moments when something on Pinterest just grabs my attention and screams out at me to get my glue gun. With Earth Day right around the corner, I thought I would put together a collection of eco friendly craft projects from my own blogs as well as from a few of my favorite blogger friends. Keep in mind that every single day should be Earth Day! Show your children how easy it is to turn something old into something new and beautiful. Grab your glue gun and create something new for your home that you might otherwise throw away. There are a ton of ways for kids and adults to reduce their carbon footprint just by being crafty!
