Trash to Treasure
Old boxes, markers, crayons or paint
Ever notice how the kids like the boxes as much as the gifts? Well, don't just throw those boxes away. I recycle all cardboard boxes by ripping or cutting them into artwork canvases. Using an extra large clip, mount the cardboard onto an art easel if you have one. If not just lay them on the table. Then let your kids create on this new medium. My kids can't wait to get their hands on a box when something arrives in the mail. After they are done creating, we'll hang it on their art line until another box arrives and a new artwork appears.
