It’s Playtime: Play with Recycled Items

Is your recycling bin overflowing? Mine is! Here are four ideas of ways you can turn your trash into treasure – or at least half an hour of play and exploration!

Melissa over at The Chocolate Muffin Tree (one of my favorite blogs!) used the lid of a dish soap bottle, an old CD and a balloon to make a hovercraft. I’m sure this will be a huge hit one rainy day in the future!

Jaime, my partner and co-host of the It’s Playtime link-ups added a tutorial on how to use cans to create a unique and musical windchime.   It looks great!

Cathy over at Preschool Play used old buckets, kitchen pans, tubs and other discarded items to create an outdoor musical station for her kids.   I bet her kids love it, I know mine would (even the neighbors wouldn’t :).

And every parent of toddlers and early preschoolers has gads of diapers leftover from when either they outgrew a size or that the kids got ahold of and tore the sticky parts off, or whatever… Andrea of Jada Roo found a use for those spare diapers and had fun doing a science experiment with her kids.   I bet they loved squishing the silica!

Those were my favorite posts from last week’s link ups, I featured a number others on the Quirky Momma facebook wall – and hope you will have fun browsing the posts that are linked up over the next few days – I know I will!
