Have fun, create, learn, and help the planet with the young kids in your life through 50 colorful, enriching activities made from stuff you already have.

With Recycle and Play, learn how to transform cardboard, bubble wrap, lids, containers, egg cartons, and other things that might otherwise be headed to a landfill into hours of engaging play at home. The fun, process-oriented projects invite children to be creative, explore senses, develop skills, and discover how things work, all while reinforcing the importance of reducing waste as part of a sustainable lifestyle.

In this book, you’ll find tips on how to extend play and learning for each project as well as helpful hints to engage your kids to come up with fun additions and extensions of their own.

While each of the projects includes clear step-by-step instructions and materials lists, you should feel free to adjust to your child’s interests and the materials you have on hand.

  • Car Garage and Ramp made from toilet paper tubes and cardboard (Learning Skills: Fine motor skills, creative play, and color recognition)
  • Mess-Free Bubble Wrap Painting (Learning Skills: Art, sensory exploration, creative skills, color recognition)
  • Busy Board Lid Activity (Learning Skills: Fine motor skills, cognitive skills)
