Favorite Recycled Crafts

Plant a Tree!  Check out the cool link below from the Arbor Day Foundation!  Get out and plant a tree or plants with your kids, get your hands a little dirty and dig in the earth!  The Arbor Day Foundation even sells trees for a great price, and you can give them as gifts too!  Just $3 each!  Imagine handing out tiny gift trees as party favors at your next event or at Christmas time!  You must bookmark this idea, it's one you won't want to forget!

Give the Gift of Trees, Just $3 each!

Go Geocaching!  Geocaching is a great way to get outdoors AND have fun!  It's a GPS guided scavenger hunt.  Sign up for a free Geocaching account and use your handheld GPS or Smartphone to help you locate the geocaches.  Some are even full of tiny treasures and trinkets your kids will just love.  Add this great activity to your list of things you must try!


Make Earth Day about doing something different.  Get out and explore, stomp around in the woods, dig in the dirt, reduce, reuse, recycle and more!
