Green Crafts for Children
35 step-by-step projects using natural, recycled and found materials
It’s time to get creative with these 35 eco-friendly kids’ craft projects. You’ll be amazed at what you can make using unwanted or waste materials from around the home.
There are creative recycling ideas for kids of all ages and interests to enjoy making whilst learning new skills, from making your old salt dough and paper maché to simple sewing, paper-crafting and painting projects. Little ones will love designing their own potato print t-shirt, whilst older children can have a go at making a driftwood boat, puppets and even a paper dolls house. All using upcycled materials such as corks, plastic bags, scraps of fabric and natural materials, children can learn about the importance of recycling whilst making fun and exciting projects.
