Recycled Crafts - Fridge and Stove

with 5 comments




Recycled Crafts is a  great way to teach our kids about recycling and the environment.

What I like the most is that I get to see my  kids creative side and also this kind of craft  teaches them a lot about recycle.

Another important thing is that I get to talk to my kids about how you don't need to go to the store to get something new all the time, you can make something cool and original :)

I have two projects to show you.

The first one is using rice...not really recycling because we used uncooked rice...


Here is a link for colored rice art.

I don't have pictures of the rice before and after but Here  


you will find out how to color rice.


Just coloring the rice is fun, but I did it thinking they could make art using the colored rice.




And this is the Beautiful Art my kids made for me! ....


 They also used dry peas :)


We just used 2 colors, blue and purple.


By the way, have seen "writing on rice grain"?


 Right Here is a video on how to write on rice grain.

I saw last week that you can make a sand box...




Well... it would be rice box, like a sand box but instead of sand you can use colored rice.


I want to try that, but I need to figure it out how big my container will be.


Now the next craft is.....

Recycle!!!!!!!!!!!




We used a cookie box to make a play fridge and a taco shell box to make a play stove.

This was a very special mommy and daughter thing :) We spend time talking about what color, how to do it and had lots of fun doing it!

First the stove....


Before.....



After....



Fridge 

Before...


After...


 100% Recycle.

We used lollipop wraps, scrapbooking paper, juice and soda label and I used Velcro instead of a handle to open and close the fridge.


Funny thing is that they have a play kitchen but they love this stove and fridge.

It was fun.

And Ariana still doing Origami, yesterday she made a little and a big house.


This Summer was special!



Ariana found her L-O-V-E for crafts!
