Recycled Supplies


Just recently we received a note from my daughter's preschool requesting parents to help in outfitting the kids with crafting supplies. The list was pretty much everything in our recycle bin. Stuff from milk jugs, to cardboard tubes to bubble wrap. We laughed when we took in this big bag of what essentially looked like garbage. But seeing the stuff that the kids were making out of this "garbage" really got me thinking. If kids can make creative crafts with "junk", why can't we? I scoured Etsy once again and found some really awesome recycled supplies ready and waiting for your imagination!RecycledSupplies_Pics

  1. Thanks ladies! Chaucee, not weird at all! I think this is a great lesson to all of us to be aware of what we’re throwing away and how it might be repurposed. I’m really glad that my daughter’s school is conscious of this!
