What to Do With CDs: 18 Recycled Crafts from Household Items

What to Do With CDs: 18 Recycled Crafts from Household ItemsYour little ones probably don't even know what a CD is, but if they hunt around your house, I'm sure they'll find some of your ancient treasures. CD stands for compact disc, and, believe it or not, before iPods and the like, that's how people listened to music. Now that CDs have no purpose, your little ones might as well put them to good use. Your kids can follow this guide to find out what to do with CDs rather than just pitching them in the garbage. CDs are a perfect circle, and so they are the ideal base to many craft projects. Turn that circle into a ladybug's body, a monster's face, or the surface of a gorgeous mandala. When your kids make crafts from household items, the cost of crafting is reduced greatly, leaving you more allowance for other awesome treats.

Your kids can play games, escape on a camping trip, and scare off trick-or-treaters all with the same simple item: a compact disc. We even have craft ideas for what to do with CDs' cases because there are bound to be tons of those lying around as well. Sure, you could go to the store and buy toys for kids and cute decor for their room, but nothing tops homemade toys for kids and handmade decorative crafts that they made themselves.

Stop wondering what to do with CDs, and let your kids start making crafts from household items. You'll find that the clutter in your house will magically be reduced when they use those otherwise useless items to make something great. Save money, clean up your house, and have your kids decorate their room with awesome crafts for kids.

I also have cds to listen to and cassettes and 8-tracks , etc. But I have a ton of cds from old computer programs that are of no use anymore, so I welcome all the ideas I can get to use them in other ways!

Surely you are kidding with this article--CDs have no purpose??? No one listens to music on CD any longer? Apparently not in your household, but mine is full of CDs as is the CD changer in my truck. I even have a whole rack of cassettes, as well as VHS movies (and VCR). I still even have an 8-track player in my old stereo, just no 8-tracks any longer, as well as 33 vinyl records and a turntable to play them on. Please save us the big deal about all your electronic gadgetry overtaking the music industry. Music has to be recorded somewhere. The projects you create using unusable CDs hopefully look better than the three displayed above. Try hanging them out in the garden to deter the birds and deer from eating your produce if you must use them for something. And they can be recycled if you are so inclined.
