It’s April again.
I know, it’s been April for a while now. . . Ten days and a few hours, to be exact.
But it really just hit me yesterday.
I don’t know.
April is a remarkable month for me. One of my favorites for sure.
We’ve already celebrated a couple of things during the month of April.
So why, when I realize it’s time to do the recycling craft again, does it shock me?
I guess maybe it’s not April that’s grabbing me by surprise, but “recycled craft” time that’s shaking me awake.
Every year, with every child, we go through this.
Make a recycled craft for school.
I feel like I always come up with something pretty. . . lame.
It’s never been a favorite project of mine.
I enjoy the process with whichever kiddo it might be at the time, but I never really feel like the projects hit the mark as far as usefulness goes.
No one really needs a mobile made from an old hanger and spray painted soda cans. . . . Do they? If you do, let me know – I’ve got one I’ll mail you for free.
So this year, I kept my eyes peeled for cool crafts. Useful crafts. Things I would actually want to keep around.
And I’ve made a little collection to share with you – because I’m sure you are going to be going through this at some point too – or at least someone you know will, and you can be like, “Oh! I saw this great little collection of recyclable crafts you can actually USE!” and tell them all about it. . . .
Maybe, . . . right?
So here you go.
