CD Crafts

We love to upcycle around here. It’s great for kids to realize that they can take things they look at as trash and turn it into something else! CD’s and DVD’s are a fun item to craft with because there are so many things you can do with them. Look below, you’ll even see a working car!

Many of us are getting away from CD’s. Music is now streamed online, as a re movies, so you may find yourself with a large number of CD’s and DVD’s that are collecting dust. And if you’re like me, it hurts just throwing stuff out. I hate wasting. So, these CD crafts are a great way to use up these old discs in a fun way from decorations, toys, and more.
