Like i said before, the earlier you teach good habits to your children, the easier they are incorporated into daily life and routine. Recycling crafts became our routine, Nady is getting more and more aware about waste and more than that he is concerned about preserving natural resources.
For instance, he turns off the water while brushing his teeth because this is a waste for water “c’est du gaspillage maman!”(gaspillage=waste). I can’t but be proud of you Nady ❤
Today we are recycling food jars into a vase and magazine papers into flowers.
First start by peeling off the packaging paper, spray it with white so your little ones can paint later with acrylic colors after completely dry. Better leave it for overnight.
After the paint is dry, attach the jars together (using the wax gun) to make one center piece vase.
Now it’s the turn of magazine paper flowers. Follow the scheme for the easy tutorial.
And here is the beautiful flower vase, that can make an awesome gift for a special person or simply decorate your house with it.
