Is it time for a little disco in the kids' room? We love this disco ball! The ball can be made at home with recycled CD's. This is definitely an activity that needs parental supervision and help. You basically cut up old CD's and stick them to a styrofoam ball, but the CD edges can be sharp. We love the end result.
We found this idea at Kids National Geographic, and they had a couple of others worth mentioning as well...
Wondering what to do with all those leftover packing peanuts?Well, of course you could drop them off at your local post office that accepts them or...you and your kids could create a simple, recycled beanbag chair. Just take a large drawstring laundry bag and stuff it with the peanuts. Close it tightly and voila...a very affordable chair that is sure to bring some fun to your kid's room.
These magazine holders would make a great project the kids can do, and...they could actually store magazines! All you need are cereal boxes, wrapping paper or newspapers, and glue or clear tape.
Check out the Kids NG website for the full details, and another idea for easy wall decals made at home.
