Nearly the End of School Vacation Week
Are the kids getting restless? Tired of watching the same old DVDs. Whining that they're bored? How about getting creative? Crafts are always fun for kids, and reusing things to make something new provides a valuable lesson, too!
The crafty online site, Etsy, although usually thought of as a source for unusual handcrafted gift items, also hosts a page of "101 Green Handmade Gift Tutorials." Check it out for instructions on how to make everything from bracelets to marshmallows!
Or, visit the library and pick up one of our many crafts books for kids including Recycled Crafts Box: Sock Puppets, Cardboard Castles, Bottle Bugs & 37 More Earth-Friendly Projects & Activities You Can Create by Laura C. Martin [J 363.72 MAR] and Awesome Things To Make With Recycled Stuff by Heather Smith [J 745.5 SMI].
