IMG_2585Water Bottle Bracelets
1 water botter with smooth sides
Masking or painters tape
An iron
Non-toxic nail polish

1.  Use the tape to mark straight lines on the water bottle
2.  Cut out rings
3.  Heat each side of the ring with the iron.  I found the cotton setting worked best.
4.  Paint the inside of each ring with nail polish
Beautiful, lightweight jewelry for your kids!

Puzzle Tray
1 cardboard box from canned food, etc.
Scrap fabric
Scissors/Exacto knife
Stickers if desired

1.  Draw and cut openings for handles
2.  Glue scrap fabric to bottom of tray
3.  Have your little one cover it with stickers if desired.
Now they have a box to put their puzzles together in!

IMG_2582Recycled Notepad
2 pieces of cardboard
1 brown paper bag
Hole punch
A piece of yarn
Stickers or other decorations

1.  Cut brown paper bag into small rectangles which will fit between the two pieces of cardboard
2.  Hole punch the top of the cardboard pieces and paper
3.  Tie together with the yarn and decorate the outside with stickers
Ta da!  A fun notepad for your kids to draw or color in!

IMG_2581Ribbon Jar
1 plastic jar (I used a peanut butter jar)
Old butter knife or flat head screwdriver
Ribbon scraps
Gas stove or heat source

1.  Heat knife until red hot and cut slit in lid
2.  Let cool
3.  Fill jar with ribbons
Now they have a jar to fill with ribbons and practice unscrewing the lid.
