Upcycled Toys for Toddlers

One of our goals as a family is to make conscious decisions especially when it comes to our environment. We are in no way perfect however we continue to strive to make impactful changes in our daily routine to create a more sustainable life for ourselves. This year we discussed the holidays and our hopes of creating new conscious traditions; one of which was to make some homemade gifts using things we can recycle/upcycle to create something new.  Here are two ideas we came up with for our 1 year old.

Cardboard Box Playhouse/Carseat Box, Water based paint, Paint markers, hot glue
