This Recycled Train was designed by Wendy from Coopersburg, Pennsylvania and uses “junk” that would otherwise go in the trash. What can you make out of your cans and cardboard?
Snapple tea lids
Small cardboard box from margarine
Silver Spray Paint
Editor's Note: Glue gun should be used by a responsible adult.
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.
