7 things to recycle into art & craft projects

We all know I'm currently living in Grenada, but did you know that Grenada has NO form of recycling other than re-using glass beer bottles?  Sad but true.
I cringe every single time I throw something away.

I decided to compile a list of some easy, cheap, recyclable projects you can do with the stuff sitting in your trash can [in Grenada] right this very minute.

1. Paper - magazines, newspaper, medical school notes, etc
    2.  Cardboard - cereal boxes, shoe boxes, packaging
    3. Glass - pop bottles & jars
    4. Tin Cans 
    5. Plastic
    6. Wood
    7. Fabric

    Anyone have a good idea of how to reuse styrofoam for art or crafting?? Or do you have a another great recycling project to add to my list?

        Those are great ideas to recycle. Do you know that they actually sell a paper bead craft kit for kids. I got one for my sister one Christmas. Had I been wiser I wouldn't have gotten her something she could do for free. ha ha

        This is a wonderful list!

        I'm pretty sure I found a blog that baked styrofoam cups to make teeny tiny hats. I tried and had an epic fail.....could you make windsocks?
