Frugal Kid: Recycling Craft

Arbor Day is April 27th, here’s a fun frugal craft idea that will teach your kids about recycling and creating a beautiful piece of art featuring your child’s precious handprint at the same time!

Newspaper Art

Cereal Box
Mod Podge

1. Grab those leftover newspapers and allow your child to rip or cut it into pieces.

2. Cover the empty cereal box in Mod Podge.

3. Lay the pieces of torn newspaper to completely cover the Mod Podge. Allow to dry.

4. Paint your child’s hand with paint and have them put their handprints on the box to create tree top.

4. Paint a bottom to your tree and allow your child to fingerpaint leaves.

Since the cereal box acts as like a thick canvas print, we are using ours to cover up the thermastat!
