DIY Recycled Toys: Flip Your Recyclables into Fun

By: Dana Sorge

Your children can outgrow their toys just as quickly as they outgrow their clothes. Why even bother buying something new? Literally, never worth it. As aspiring supermoms, we are always on the prowl to find fun, creative, sustainable ways to flex our children’s imagination. There’s no better way than by making toys out of the trash and upcyling our recyclables into crafts— and lord knows we have our fair share of it around the house these days. Nothing like endless time spent at home to remind us of just how much plastic and cardboard waste we produce on a daily basis, so let’s turn that trash into toys. Our toddlers will thank us for the fun indoor activity, and so will the planet.

It’s only trash if we trash it.

You know?



DIY Jetpack

While browsing sustainable fashion pioneer Stella McCartney’s latest lineup, we came across this action-shot from the archives and wow has it lead to some major upcyling inspo! All you need here is some corrugated cardboard or paper towel rolls, string, and fabric or tissue paper for “flame” streamers. Extra points if you have caution tape laying around the house (but why??) or paint your own. Bundle all together with string or tape and BOOM, you’re off!
