Are you doing a lot of online shopping for the holidays? If so, don't toss those boxes just yet! Recycle them into fun crafts for your entire family and the kids.
You can make miniature Christmas trees, ornaments, or even other holiday shapes (reindeer, snowflakes, etc.) and decorate with paint, glitter, ribbon, yarn, stickers, embellishments, foam paper, construction paper, glitter glue, and anything else you have on hand!
Once decorated you can attach a ribbon to make actual homemade ornaments, or hang to make into a wreath, or leave as is for decorations, the possibilities are endless! Also this makes a nice fun indoor rainy day art and craft project!
Total Time: Time varies depending on how many you make
Interested in an eco-friendly alternative to a Christmas tree? Want to expand your recycling efforts? How about making a cardboard Christmas tree? Not only will you have a unique tree, but the making of it will be a fun activity for the whole family.
