A new craft every day

Recycled London Bus

Here’s another great recycled craft idea from my friend Chickpea and her Mom in the UK. Boxes made the greatest toys.


Cardboard Box

Recycled Plastic sheet

Pipe Cleaners

Red Paint

Black Marker

Tacky Glue


Paper Plates


Turn up the flaps on the top of the box and round the corners at the front. Use the photo as a reference.

Cut out area for windshield and glue in plastic from Old Pizza Box (this is in the UK) Perhaps some other recycled plastic or waxed  paper would work.

Wipers are sparkly pipe cleaners and are glued on.

Paint the box red and draw on the details with marker.

Cut two paper plates in half and glue to box as wheels.

I'm a homeschool mom of six. My family has been homeschooling for about eleven years. And, each year, we've learned a little more about having fun, and spending less, while learning more. It's great to be a homeschooler!
