Just in Time for Earth Day & Cinco De Mayo!

Hi friends! Do you have any leftover plastic Easter eggs kicking around the house? If so you can make some fun Maracas!


With Earth Day tomorrow I thought it would be nice to recycle and use up some leftover supplies from past projects. Look around your stash, do you have some odds and ends that can be repurposed into a new treasure? Watch this video to see how to make these fun noise makers!


Recycled items:
Plastic Easter Eggs
Filler such as leftover beads, dried rice/beans or gravel

Papermart Stuff (leftover from other fun tutorials on this blog!)
Duct tape
Paper straws

I hope this inspired you to turn some trash to treasure and use up your leftover supplies rather than tossing them in the trash. If you hate keeping leftover supplies around you can always toss them in a box and donate it to a preschool or scouting group when the box is full, they will gladly make some art with your leftovers! Thanks to Papermart for sponsoring this post and til next time happy crafting!
