Although we would guess many of you do your best to always bring along your own reusable shopping bags to the grocery store, we are willing to bet that you still manage to accumulate plastic ones. And they in turn manage to multiply like rabbits. Here is a way to thin the herd a bit that will have your kids (and maybe you, too) jumping for joy. Taking a common object and turning it into something completely different is always an interesting challenge, and Katie at A Childhood List embraced it fully. With a lot of creativity, a few household materials and some old skills she last used when making friendship bracelets, she managed to make a colorful and fully functional jump rope.
This craft is easy enough for the kids to be involved, and is the perfect opportunity to talk about reusing and upcycling. Nice work Katie!
