Both of my kids were feeling a little under the weather and a lot stir crazy. So when I suggested that we get crafty, they were all over it. I had a ton of old magazines that I was going to throw out but instead decided we could turn them into cute pencil cups. I watched a video tutorial that I found somewhere on YouTube on how to roll the magazines. WOW! There are so many cool craft ideas out there using old magazines. I really want to try making beads out of magazines – they look so pretty. Anyway, back to the Recycled Magazine Pencil Cup…
Supplies we used: Old Magazines, Glue, Scissors, Pencil & Soup Can
Here is the mess we created:
And here is Caleb’s New Pencil Cup:
This project kept the kids busy for a few hours and they were proud of the finished product.
I found several fun ways to reuse old magazines at http://www.familyfun.go.com. I think we will try this project next, Paper Flowers: http://familyfun.go.com/crafts/glossy-paper-flowers-674404/ What a great teacher appreciation gift idea, paper flowers with a note attached saying: “Thank you for helping me grow.”
Happy Paper Crafting to you!
