This morning, I'm on a mission to find some great recycled craft ideas for everyone and I think I've found some really fun ones! I'm completely tempted to try out that fourth one with my kids, and the first one sounds like another great use for old t-shirts as well!
As usual, I've found all of these crafts on the Family Fun website: http://www.familyfun.go.com/ You absolutely HAVE to check this website out if you haven't yet. It's stuffed with fun crafts for kids of almost all ages and all sorts of holidays, etc.
Here's some of my favorites:
1. Backpack Shirt:
