[Earth Day Edition] Crafting Repurposed Puppets

Brian and I have both blogged about our earth-friendly efforts since we both became bloggers in 2011. What better way to hand this green lifestyle down than to teach our nieces and nephews to do so too. Recently, I had the opportunity to do just that when I babysat my nieces.

My niece with repurposed puppets.
This post is dedicated to an arts and crafts project I conducted with my nieces based around repurposed (recycled) items. For The Brown's: a recycled home or craft project evokes something you already had around the house; were given specifically for repurposing; picked up thrifting or bought at a restore it store. To be classified as population-we™ repurposed project: one- or all- components should be recycled in the project. In this case, my nieces used items already on-hand. Every birthday and Christmas in The Brown's household--we don't throw away the wrapping paper, tissues and bows--instead we store them away for another day. This day, my nieces would be inspired to make puppets (shown at right) from repurposed brown paper bags and other items out of this stockpile.

In short, we want to share with our readers that Earth Day, which falls on Wednesday April 22, this year--can be fun and commemorated every day of the year. Happy repurposed puppet making!

Editor's Note: In celebration of the 45th anniversary of Earth Day population-we™ staffers will celebrate our love for planet earth with green posts the entire month of April! For this post we celebrate the art of repurposing for a craft project. Thanks for reading our third Earth Day post.
