15 ideas to reuse all kinds of materials

Recycled materials are a good opportunity to unleash the imagination and create unique, personalized and very (very) creative toys. Cardboard boxes, cans, used boats … everything serves as raw material to create. In addition, toys with recycled material are a good way to convey to the smallest of the house the importance of reusing and betting on a more responsible consumption. Beware of these 17 ideas!

1. Cardboard car circuit

With a little cardboard and felt, you can create a very complete and cool car circuit. Buckets, trucks, motorcycles … anything, the limit is your imagination!

2. Table football with a box

This idea freaks us out. You just have to take a shoebox, open two holes at the sides as a goal, place some sticks in which the tweezers will go, and voila! You just need to throw the ball and play. A superoriginal table football 🙂

3. Snake with cork

This snake made with cork chips is great. And above all, easy! It is simply crossed by a red thread, which is knotted to accommodate each cork, and which ultimately serves as a tongue. Grab a pencil to paint your eyes … and you already have a pet. How about?

9. Boats turned into dolls

We believe that it is, of all the ideas of recycled toys, the one we like the most. Because it takes full advantage of an object to give it a new use. They are boats! Gel, shampoo … turned into dolls, simply painting eyes, nose and mouth. Easier? Impossible!

10. Toy cars with cardboard tubes

Do you want to play racing and you don’t have cars? You only need tubes of toilet paper, marker and cardboard, to make fun and colorful vehicles. Also, if you make them an opening in the center, you can put dolls!
