Craft Roundup: Eco-Friendly Family Crafts

Happy April! This month is a great time to think green and give our planet a little extra love. April 22 is Earth Day and, just a few days later, on April 26 it’s Arbor Day. Encourage your family and friends to be more environmentally friendly this month by trying to recycle as much trash as possible, reusing things whenever you can – and reducing what you take in overall. For craft projects this month, which items do you have on hand that could be upcycled into new art supplies? Look at this week’s Make It roundup for some inspiration.
