This is so cute! I recently helped my nephew make a bird feeder out of a recycled milk carton. It was such a great way to spend time with him!


What a great little project. My 7 year old son loves sewing, too! His fine-motor skills lag behind slightly and he has trouble concentrating on work that requires fine-motor, so I never thought sewing would be up his alley, but he has done a few embroidery projects, and this will be our next! I have leftover felted sweaters from christmas gifts last year!


Very cool Maryssa - I agree eco-crafts are such a fun way to spend time with kids!



Hi Nancy - I'm so glad you like this idea for your 7 year old! It's so important to work on those fine motor skills and sewing is a great way to do it!

My son is too young for this yet but he loves anything that requires dexterity. This is a great idea as he gets older. Plus it teaches the value of a heart gift and recycling. A winner all around. Thanks for sharing

Love these! I keep thinking I'm going to do a felting project soon. Maybe I'll start with these and make them with my girls!


Hi Andrea - this is a really fun project to do w/kids. I've done it at my kids' school and it's been very popular!

I absolutely love this! This post is so informative and I think my subscribers would really enjoy reading this. I would love, actually I'd be honored, for you to come share it at Frugal Days, Sustainable Ways on Frugally Sustainable this Wednesday. And, I really hope that you will put Frugal Days, Sustainable Ways on your list of carnivals to visit and link to each Wednesday!
