How about making crafts from items people already have around the house? This way you don't have to spend a ton of money on supplies, and you can also pat yourself on the back knowing you've done something good for the planet. Here are a few ideas of crafts you can make from household items:

  • Sock puppets (who doesn't have stray socks lying around the house?)
  • Cereal box robots
  • Fabric scrap flower garden
  • Clothespin magnets
  • Milk jug bird feeders
  • Shoe box cars

An added bonus is that kids love making things out of stuff they already recognize. Make sure you keep some extra supplies on hand just in case someone forgets to bring their cereal box or milk jug.
