One of my favorite ways of crafting with my kids is by repurposing items that would normally go in the trash or recycling bin. Items such as bottle caps, plastic bottles, soda cans, newspapers, and empty jars all have tremendous possibilities with so many beautiful results. The following 18 Earth Day Crafts are so much better than just throwing it all away, too. Not to mention, less trash is always better for the environment, as well.
With Earth Day quickly approaching, why not make something to celebrate the Earth out of what we have around the house? Below you will find 18 Earth Day Crafts perfect for celebrating the world we live in, keeping it beautiful, and showcasing some creativity, as well.
