Recycled Crafts are a Hit!!

One man's trash is another man's treasure, or so the saying goes.  On April 8th at the Regency Park Library, we put that thought to the test.  We took items that would normally be thrown away... such as old juice bottles, buttons, and cereal boxes... and turned them into our very own treasures!

Over the past couple of months, we collected juice bottles.  (Thanks to the storytime moms!)  We used some scraps of cardboard and felt, old buttons, and pipe cleaners and turned them into piggy banks.  We made gift bags by covering old cereal boxes with decorated paper and adding a few stamps and some ribbon.

We succeeded in turning this trash into some great treasures that can be re-used!
