Recycled Crafts

Craft projects using recycled household items can be fun!

A hands-on experience for kids, craft work can be a very creative way to spend a raining afternoon indoors.

Newspaper, wool, socks, plastic pots, pipecleaners, egg cartons and bottle tops can be transformed into cute-as-pie craft ideas.

Here are two fun craft projects that use regular household items, including Anathoth Farm pottles – extracts from the ‘Recyclopaedia A-Z of creative ideas using everyday waste items’, NZ Edition 2009. Author Fiona Edwards.
