A new craft every day

Recycled Train

This craft was designed by Wendy from Coopersburg, Pennsylvania and uses “junk” that would otherwise go in the trash.

Supplies

Tin Can


Snapple tea lids


Small cardboard box from margarine


Glue Sticks


Glue Gun*


Silver Spray Paint

*Editor\\'s Note: Glue gun should be used by a responsible adult.

Instructions

We used a tin can and some Snapple tea lids for the wheels. We found a cardboard box from some sticks of butter, toilet paper tube and used hot glue to fasten it together. Add a coat of silver spray paint and you are on the rails! We saved some cereal boxes and created a tunnel too.
