One great way that we can help the planet and the animals that live on it is by recycling. The Pittsburgh Zoo has some awesome crafts for your Zoobooks reader to transform old odds and ends around the house into fun decorations. You can learn how to make a caterpillar from an old egg carton, an elephant from an old CD, a gray sock, and some construction paper, an octopus out of an old paper towel tube, and more! And the best part is, once you start thinking creatively about how to reuse old things around the house in craft projects, the sky’s the limit– it’s fun to find new ways to have fun and make beautiful things with what at first glance might look like junk. Can you think of any other animal crafts you can make with things around your house?
