Easy Summer Crafts for Kids, Part I

1. Milk Carton Birdhouse & Bird Feeder Kids Craft

My kind of craft, making something useful and pretty right from the recycling bin. You can also paint cans and jars, too. For the cans, make sure that no parts can cut little hands.

Right up there with refashioning and recycling is tie-dyeing! (Or is it tie dying? idk.) Just be sure to wash your beach towel before use, otherwise your bathing suit might end up being dyed.
