R ight, school's out, it's cold, and it's raining outside. What to do? Well, with just a little imagination, and some recycled items that you saved from your last house clearance, all is not lost!

There are hundreds of crafts you can do with kids using only recycled items, here are just 20 of them.

1. So one of our old favorites here, NEVER throw away old Christmas cards! It's almost an unwritten rule that these are used to make Christmas gift tags by cutting out pictures, making holes, and attaching wool or thread. The best part is that children absolutely love making these and there are usually plenty to go around! Plus it's cost-effective as you don't have to buy any!

2. Talking about Christmas, there are hundreds of items that can be recycled and used as decorations for the Christmas tree, but some especially good ones are the ones made from leftover food - yes food! Unwanted scraps of pastry can be shaped, baked, and painted, peanuts in shells and popcorn can be threaded together, and tangerines or oranges can be hung after being decorated with cloves. The added bonus is that after Christmas, these can all be composted!


Not long ago, I discovered a fresh concept which I believe you are going to appreciate. It was a round coffee table with safe-keeping compartments, which provided space or room and being designed all assembled in a single trendy-looking sheaf.

In case you spent the childhood years as I used to, using long rectangle-shaped coffee tables, subsequently the circular appearance alone would certainly blow you away. You will see no edges for bumping shins or perhaps a running stocking on this particular piece of furniture. Neither you can get a huge bare space below where, irrespective of whether you want it nor otherwise, things will quickly pile up. Perhaps you may still desire to preserve all those past issues of periodicals, but using this table’s choice of storage that fills up that once bare space, at this point you will have an area to place all of them where most of the world does not have to find out.

Because of the circular table area, the sliding receptacles underneath the table could be angled to fit or, sometimes, they tend to be suited to a rectangle-shaped or square below the table, which may serve as a frame to support the top. The design and size of the particular safe-keeping areas differ. Quite a few are generally smaller than average ideal for keeping table top such as things as coasters, TV remote controls, and many others. Others are big enough to keep ages’ value of back issue magazines as well as the existing TV set guidebook in addition to a bag of potato chips where children will likely not discover prior to taking pleasure for your own craving.

The round coffee table having a storage area provides you with a distinctive circular form and offers plenty of space., I am already sold, and I trust, immediately after a single glimpse, you will end up like me as well.


Kids love their toys, with cars, airplanes and tanks playing a central role in their lives, but in some people this passion never subsides. When you see the way, these plastic models look today, it is impossible to blame them, and you will feel an overwhelming urge to own one yourself. There are so many types of vehicles available for sale, that unless you have a very common and uninteresting type of car, there is a good chance to find plastic models that replicate yours. You don’t have to be filthy rich to have your private jet, and as long as they are made from plastic, military airplanes are also available.

Such a generous diversity will only stir up passions, and this is how collectors are born. Many start with just one vehicle they receive from a friend, while others see a collection of plastic models in a friend’s house. It is more than enough to make them interested in this wonderful world, and the most dedicated ones will orient all their energy to expand their own collections. Some of these vehicles don’t come already installed, so you need to combine the pieces and even paint them, so it gets even more exciting.


The world awaits bold travelers who want to discover more than their neighborhood and traveling abroad has never been easier. With a little planning and access to online vacation rentals, anyone can book a room in a hotel located thousands of miles away, without even calling the reception. Finding the best place to stay is not longer an intricate procedure that involves a lot of research and with results being uncertain until the very last moment.

There are specialized websites that can speed up the process greatly, by providing their visitors with all the filters, they need to narrow down the search.
If you are ready for the good times and only need a small boost, start by booking a room in a hotel or by renting an apartment. A simple search for vacation rentals will highlight all the worthy options and depending on the criteria that you consider to be relevant, you will be directed to the best deals.

While the results will include mostly those vacation rentals that meet your profile, you will be presented with enough alternatives to make an educated decision. By the time you reach your destination, everything will be in place, and you will have nothing more to do than to enjoy yourself.
