11 easy crafts and activities for kids using recycled materials, plus the 60 day junk play challenge blog hop!

I love crafts and activities that reuse things that I normally throw away. I keep a stash of paper rolls, bubble wrap, egg cartons, etc. in my craft storage bin at all times because you never know what fun things they may become!

I've pulled together my favorite recycled crafts and activities for kids that I've shared here. Take a look, be inspired, and get creative!
