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?
4. Toy guitar with recycled material
For music lovers, there are also options to make a toy with superchulo recycled material. If you do not believe it, look at this guitar created with a cardboard box, some threads and a tube, also made of cardboard. There are no excuses to create 🙂
5. Cork house
We continue with the possibilities offered by cork, and we can not like it more. It is a miniature house, full of details. Those who like to do projects that require patience and dedication are sure you love this idea.
6. Toy robot with recycled material
This idea is the perfect sign that mixtures can work out well. Take everything you find: pieces of cardboard, two rolls of cardboard, loose buttons, a can of food … Because you’re about to create a most curious robot!
7. Recycled puppet
When you think of toys with recycled material do you think of non-aesthetic toys? Look at this option. A fox puppet, made with cardboard, a cardboard tube, strings, a pair of plugs and two straws to play with. You like?
8. Little train made with caps and cardboard
Travelers to the train! A very easy idea for the little ones in the house to play to take the train to the station, while they learn the importance of recycling. Of course, it is made with caps and cardboard 🙂
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!
11. Recycled toys with cans: homemade drums
What can you do with balloons and tin cans? We leave you a few seconds to think about it… Can’t you think of it? Well, we give you the idea, some drums! Decorate them with cardboard, paint … whatever you prefer, and let them begin to sound!
12. Cardboard kitchenette
Look! We encourage you to create your own kitchen oven made entirely of cardboard. In addition, you can recreate food with a bit of felt, like this super-delicious pizza. Would you do it
13. Toy photo camera
Pay attention. This cardboard toy photo camera aims at a gel bottle cap! Attach a strap and decorate it with colored masking tape, the details in a marker … and ready!
14. Puppy made with cans
Can’t you have a pet at home? Maybe the solution is to create your own puppy 🙂 This one is made with pieces of tin, and plastic caps. It is a very funny idea, surely children love it. How about?
15. Game of 3 in a row
With a few simple stones and gauze, you can create a very beautiful 3 in a row. For each opponent’s pieces, you can take the inspiration you want to decorate. In this idea, they have chosen to put animated faces. What would you choose? 🙂
