Decorating home is very important because it creates an aura of love and happiness. More so, it also makes a good impression on the outsiders, visitors and the guests.
Those arts and crafts ideas are so cute and creative! I will make these with my daughter.
these crafts are beautiful and so creative. I am an advocate of reusing and recycling stuff as that saves our earth and is climate-friendly. Thanks for sharing so many reusable craft ideas here.
My toddlers will love these! The butterflies are so cute. Great ideas!
I would love to do This with my kids someday. What a great way to teach them about creativity and recycling and reusing
These are cute ideas! My daughter will like this especially the bugs we will try to do these soon. Thank you for sharing.
I LOVE this idea! We always have extra milk crates around so it’s PERFECT!
The song look amazing! You couldn’t trust my toddler with a DIY confetti popper to save your soul, but I’m definitely going to try all the other ones.
I love this! I try and use up any waste such as toilet roll innards etc on making toys for my youngest cat. Only if it’s safe, of course.
I have to say whenever my friends kids craft they get more enjoyment from making things from waste products than the ‘ready made” stuff. I think it really draws on their imagination more. Great ideas!
The baby yoda looks really cute. My little boys love Starwars and I know they’d be happy to make this. Thank you for sharing this brilliant idea.
These craft ideas sounds amazing and looks much lovely and awesome..Thanks for sharing them..will check these out..loved them,…great work…
Those animals made from egg cartons are so cute. We always used to save toilet paper rolls when I was younger to make crafts!
I love the idea of using these household leftovers for creative crafts! That crab is so cute and would make a fun addition to a “under the sea” themed party for kids.
such cute crafts…i will definitely try a few… Thank you for such an amazing share
These are so cute! I don’t have any kids yet but I’d love to do these with them when the time comes!
Very often the waste material proves to be the best recovery material to create incredible things and your blog post is proof of this.
I love doing DYI crafts like this! I’m so excited to make this for my nephew I’m sure they would love this! Awesome
haha cute ideas.. I think even adults can try such thing during broedom times. I would like to try one with toilet paper roll because it looks attractive and easy.
These are so cute! I really love the dinosaur. One of my favorite crafts as a kid was making rain sticks out of paper towel rolls!
As a kid, being crafty with just about anything was my favorite pass time. As an adult, it can also be extremely fun. This project looks like a blast.
Love all the different characters you were able to make either with egg cartons or toilet paper rolls! So creative. I liked the Yoda head, that was fun but I think I really liked the crabs you made with the toilet rolls. The New Years eve poppers seems like such a fun project but I know me, I would make it then immediately need to pop it cause there is a 5 year old little boy hiding inside me!
