* Summer Fun: Green Craft Ideas from Pink and Green Mama Archives

As we are all preparing for that 
LONG summer break...
it's always nice to have a few crafty ideas up your sleeve
to break up some rainy/muggy/buggy afternoons
with some fun and green CRAFTIVITIES.

Bet you've already got the supplies for 
more than one of these right now!

Popping some of the Bubble Wrap 
is a "Must-Do"step
 before you start printing.
It's just cruel to tell kids they 
aren't allowed to pop it! 

Turn those Foam Stickers 
into Stamps!
You know you don't know what to do with that
bucket full of foam shapes you've had for 4 years!

This one is currently holding Bakugans and Fancy Rocks,
we also have one holding backyard treasures
like flowers and more fancy rocks.

A great way to use some bits from our
"Inventions Box" 

from our Mermaids and Pirates Birthday Party

Hello sock bunny...why the long face? 

make your OWN non-toxic art supplies!

The birds are still enjoying this one
in our front yard!

Channel your inner Lois Ehlert!

(with recycled cardboard!)
Save those backyard treasures
then use them in your art. 

(for backyard summertime adventures!)

We made cinnamon and peppermint.
Our current favorite is Kool-Aid Play Dough!

My all-time favorite
recycled craft project would be...
I made for the girls on their birthdays last year.
Both girls sleep under them at night
and I love the memories we all have from 
their little bits of favorite clothes.

Happy GREEN Crafting!

I love recycling and being creative at the same time. Some new ideas here, that I'm going to store away.

Thank you for sharing. This is such a good series of posts.

Perfect! I'm getting a box of sea shells donated tomorrow.

I totally agree about the bubble wrap. In fact, we just did this last week and I just had 2 stations, one with popping wrap and one with painting wrap.

Since I'm really just digging into your blog, I'm very thankful you've been doing so much linking back to older posts! =)

Thank you so much for these ideas! We are going to the beach this weekend for fathers day so I am going to grab a bunch of sea shells to make a mobile with :) Also I adore the trinket carton. We have rocks and flowers all over the place that need a safe place to call home!
