Fly through the air propelled by flames, hunt for treasure as you follow the map, and withstand the bitter cold of the Arctic Circle with the help of recycled materials. The clever ideas are endless when it comes to using old items for cheap and easy costume crafts for kids. Did you ever see the resemblance between a fruit cup and a polar bear's nose? Start to think out of the box so that you can make amazing recycled crafts for kids out of an empty soap box or an old newspaper. Imagine how much money you will save when your child begins to make his own toys and use recycled materials rather than store-bought materials for crafts.

Encourage kids' imaginations to fly even higher as you strap a homemade jet pack, made by them, onto their backs. Where will they travel and what will they accomplish with the power of flight?
The easiest of the easy crafts for kids are included in this book. Just because these crafts are easy enough for preschoolers, though, does not mean that a teenager won't be interested. In fact, some of these crafts for preschoolers are absolutely adorable as a teen-made gift or decoration. There's definitely no downside to an easy craft that still looks great. Many crafts in this recycled crafts eBook are appropriate for a large range of ages, including these, but the simplest of the bunch have been designated for your convenience. Another highlight of the crafts for preschoolers is that they are made to be completed in very few steps at different times. Since preschoolers aren't so fond of sitting still for extended periods of time, these recycled crafts are perfect for those antsy-pants youngins. Even though these projects consist of very few steps, each step counts as its own activity, which makes for tons of small increments of time that you don't have to think of how to fill. Your little crafters will adore the winter wonderland that they can create for one, or many, of their toys. The snowglobes will make an adorable addition to the fun adornments filling their rooms, and they will feel a special sense of pride knowing that they made it. You, too, will feel a sense of pride knowing that you're helping the environment and saving money.
