We are big into recycling and repurposing in our family. My general rule of thumb is evaluate what we throw away to see if it can serve another use. I wouldn’t necessarily call us a green family. But we do try to make choices based on how we can make the most out of the things in our home while reducing the amount of chemicals in our products. It is these very intentions that symbolizes Earth Day for us. One of our projects this month is this Toothbrush Recycled Holder Craft Kit. My daughter made it last week and placed it by her favorite natural toothpaste, Tom’s of Maine Silly Strawberry™!
I like making craft kits simply for my daughter for household crafting or to give as gifts. I’ve discovered that my daughter is much more focused with specific crafts if I already have everything in a kit for her. Today I’m going to show you how to assemble this craft kit for yourself. Feel free to modify the version for a class or group of kids. You can put the items together in a bag, box, or any recycled container!
The items that you’ll need for this craft are listed below.
You probably already have most of these items in your house! Remember, the point of the craft is to use as many recycled items as possible. We cut a paper towel tube for the cardboard tube, and the tissue paper is crumpled paper that came in a gift bag.
Making the craft is fairly simple. A preschooler who can use scissors should be able to complete the craft with supervision. While making the toothbrush holder, take the opportunity to have a discussion with your child about the importance of recycling and repurposing items around the house. Let their imagination run wild and ask what ways they can think of to recycle trash into a craft!
For your convenience, print off the below instruction card to include in the craft kit. It gives step by step directions on how to complete the craft.
As I mentioned above, my daughter’s favorite toothpaste is the Tom’s of Maine Silly Strawberry™ Fluoride Toothpaste. When we were transitioning her from toddler toothpaste, she hated the taste of any other toothpaste. The only one she would use is Tom’s of Maine Silly Strawberry™! Her dentist actually recommended it, and her dentist was spot on! Even though she’s older now, Tom’s of Maine Silly Strawberry™ Fluoride Toothpaste is still her preference over any other. And that’s totally fine by me. She has transformed our whole family into Tom’s of Maine product users! The triplets love their toddler toothpaste, and my husband and I use the Antiplaque & Whitening Peppermint Fluoride Free Toothpaste and Whole Care® Peppermint and Spearmint Fluoride Toothpaste. I have also made a switch from my old antiperspirant to the Unisex Long Lasting Apricot Deodorant. It may seem like a small change for our family, but I feel better knowing that we are using products that are made with no artificial colors, flavors, fragrances, or preservatives. Tom’s of Maine makes it easy for every day to be Earth Day, starting with the bathroom!
I purchase our Tom’s of Maine products at Walmart. While supplies last, grab a $1.00 off any Tom’s of Maine product purchase for use at Walmart.
What does your family do to celebrate Earth Day?
