At home we can guide our kids to recycle the trash or unused stuff to make crafts. Making crafts or art projects with recycle products or cheap stuff is called 'frugal crafts' and as a parent or teacher I am very happy to recycle the stuff around the storage or cheap available material. This posts would help kids find the sites which offer frugal crafts for them.
In school art teachers can teach kids to make crafts with the stuff which is easily available around us and it costs almost nothing. For example they can make pinwheels out of construction paper, pencils and stick pins. Kids can create flowers using tissue paper and pipe.
