Fun Upcycling Craft Ideas to do with Kids

Summer holidays are finally here! Kids are out of school and definitely in need of entertainment throughout the summer. Apart from travelling, we found some fun upcycling craft ideas to do at home with your kids this summer to keep the whole family entertained. These fun summer crafts are easy and fun to make, and not to mention, a great way to spend time together!


Plastic Bottle Caps

We often hear about recycling plastic bottles but plastic lids are easy upcycle materials too. We love these 2 plastic lid craft ideas:

Plastic Lid Monsters

Plastic Lid Stamps

By following the same technique, you can easily make plastic lid animals too. To keep these bottle caps from making a mess, we suggest hot glueing a magnet behind, so you can keep these cute characters on the fridge, or stick them on paper to create gift cards.
