Chances are you will have the supplies needed to complete a project right in your house. Or, you can quickly empty a can of soup or a roll of toilet paper and wa-laa! .....instant craft supply!
I have featured quite a few recycled crafts for kids here and want to highlight those posts so you have it all in one spot for handy reference.
Because who knows when that rainy day will strike and you will be in need of a craft project...FAST!

4. Cereal Box Crafts - Cereal Box Crafts For Kids
Boxes and kids go together like peanut butter and jelly. If you ever watch a little kid with a new package, it seems they enjoy the box it came in almost more than the actual gift. Things don't change too much as they get older. Taking a box, like a cereal box, and creating something like their own village is huge fun. This idea and more can be done with cereal boxes or any other type of boxes you have laying around.
I also have a whole section dedicated to Shoe Box Crafts.
5. Button Crafts - Button Crafts For Kids
And finally, if you save buttons, crafts like this button tree only take buttons and branches. If you don't save buttons, look for old clothes that may not be in good enough condition to donate and tear off those buttons!
