You can make a cute little grass caterpillar like this one at Lottie Lulu! Try sprouting some catnip for kitty as a special treat.

You’ll be surprised how quickly your plastic lid collection will grow once you start saving them and just think of the wonderful mosaics you’ll be able to make. Check this one out at Evstra’s Flickr Photostream.

Kids will love making stickers from junk mail envelopes and you’ll love making use of all that junkmail. Get the how-to details at Junk Mail Gems!

I love this little boat made from a juice box! Inchmark has the instructions.

Plastic bags to pompoms! Find out how it’s done at Craftastica.

Shredded newspaper is great to use as pretend play food, seen here at More Mom Time. It’s also an interesting texture to add to collages or use it for hair on paper bag puppets!
