Upcycled Bee and Ladybug Crafts11:00
We love to make crafts from anything and everything that we can find around the house! It's impossible not to create a lot of waste when you have a family of 4 and go through so much food, and we do a lot of recycling, but sometimes I do keep some things for the children to play with (we love tubes!) and all sorts of boxes and pots to craft with!
I'm writing this post as a part of ALLterNATIVE Learning's 'Natural Parenting and Earth Month' Blog Hop. Loads of different bloggers from around the world are taking part, sharing all sorts of ideas for being more natural and kinder to the environment in the lead up to Earth Day. Take a look at ALLterNATIVE Learning to learn more and to enter the giveaway! You can also take a look at In The Playroom's post about Crafting with Sticks!
Today we made a bee and a ladybug shaker, perfect for welcoming spring and making a bit of noise while we're at it! We really wanted to embrace the upcycling philosophy, so we used as many things that would otherwise be thrown away as we could.
- yogurt pots
- lentils (rice, pasta, beans or similar would do as well)
- scrap paper
- black paint
- pipe cleaners
