Thinking Thursday - Green Holiday Crafts for Kids

This is a great craft for small groups of children such as church youth groups and small classrooms:

Make garland out of paper you would normally toss in the recycle bin:

Use a circle punch or trace the top of a jar to make circular cutouts out of last years holiday cards. Glue layers of circles, placing twice in between the layers for hangers.

Cut cardboard tubes from paper towels and gift wrap rolls into 1-inch sections, then fit the rings together to form a ball. Poke a hole in the top and run a string through it for a hanger.

Cut pages from magazines into 1 1/2 wide strips. Spread glue on one side, place a straw lengthwise along one edge and roll the paper around the straw. When dry, cut the straw into 1 inch pieces and thread onto ribbon.
