While citizens of this great planet try to remember reusable water bottles everywhere they go, there are still millions of plastic water bottles being thrown out each year.

Even a superhero like you will be shocked at the amazing results of using recycled materials to make kids’ crafts.

It might sound like an exaggeration, but creating water bottle crafts and crafts with bottle caps instead of simply tossing trash is a simple but heroic way to help our planet. Instead of buying craft supplies whenever you want to make a project, make recycled crafts out of items you’ve already used. Believe it or not, you can use every part of jars and bottles to create cool crafts that look as good as new. Both the body and the lid are ever-so-useful components to your next piece of art.

Kids' Crafts With Jars

Little earth-saving heroes eat a ton of protein, which means that you probably have empty peanut butter jars aplenty. Instead of kicking those jars to the curb and creating more waste, use them for fun. Creating something new with plastic lids and Mason jar lids is only one way you and your kids can craft the eco-friendly way. You can use the jar, too! No matter which of these recycled crafts you choose to make, keep your old jars out of the trash, and you'll end up saving cash when you craft.

What to Make With Bottle Caps

Bottle Cap FishiesBottle Top Alien InvasionBottle Cap Mosaic

No matter what kind of bottle you have, glass, plastic, or sports, you can make amazing crafts with bottle caps. If you're feeling really artsy-craftsy, embark on a mosaic adventure as a family. If the kids would rather play with your recycled materials crafts, experience an alien invasion or construct a catapult. Because bottle caps are so small, you'll find that people don't even bother to throw them in the garbage can. That means that bottle caps are littering the Earth on top of creating more waste. That sounds like a job for a superhero, just like your little Earth enthusiasts. Gather bottle caps to transform them into fun recycled crafts that will help save our planet.
