Scott Naturals Partnership with the National Wildlife Federation Partnership

As part of the 4 Week Challenge promotion Scott Naturals has partnered with the National Wildlife Federation and will be making a donation of up to $25,000 in support of the NWF.  

Here's how it works:
Last week was awesome!  Everyone tweeted and posted on their walls in an effort to spread the word.  Thanks to everyone for your help and support!  Please continue to spread the news so we can reach our goal of $25 clicks!

Please take advantage of Facebook and Twitter, you can use the #ScottNaturals or #ScottTestDrive hashtag, to share this link with everyone you know so that we can reach our goal of a $25,000 donation to the National Wildlife Federation

Get Crafty With Your Kids and Help Save the Planet While Your Doing It!

For the final week I wanted to bring in some fun craft ideas that are contrived from reusing old magazines, bottles and cardboard.  What better way to get the kids involved again than by creating fun art projects from ordinary everyday recyclables?

I have found some really great ideas on the Family Fun Magazine website and I wanted to share my favorite craft idea I found here. 

The Treasure Keeper Frog

*All instructions were taken from Family Fun Magazine


Materials
 
  • Masking tape
  • 2 clean plastic 2-liter bottles
  • Craft knife
  • Scissors
  • Fabric tape measure
  • Marker
  • Pushpin
  • Towel (optional)
  • 12-inch purse zipper
  • Embroidery needle and floss
  • Wine cork
  • Paintbrush and green acrylic paint
  • Glue (we used Crafter's Pick The Ultimate glue)
  • Googly eyes (we used 1/2-inch)
Instructions


  1. Treasure Keep Frog Step 1
    To make the frog shown here, wrap masking tape around the 2-liter bottles about 2 1/2 inches from the bottom. To make the taller frog, place the tape about 3 1/2 inches from the bottom. With a craft knife or scissors, cut each bottle along the tape's top edge (a parent's job).

  2. Treasure-Keeper Frog - Step 2
    Using the tape measure, mark 1/2-inch increments all around the tape, about 1/4 inch from the cut edge. Punch a hole through each mark with the pushpin. (Tip: Work on a folded towel to keep the plastic from slipping.) Remove the masking tape.

  3. Treasure-Keeper Frog - Step 3
    Close the zipper and wrap it around one bottle, as shown, using small pieces of tape to hold it in place. Thread the needle with 40 inches of floss, then knot the end, leaving a 3-inch tail. Sew the zipper to the bottle, starting from the inside and pulling the thread in and out of the punched holes. Remove the tape as you go. At the end, knot the floss and tie both tails together, then trim off the excess floss. Open the zipper and sew it to the second bottle in the same way.

  4. Treasure-Keeper Frog - Step 4
    To make the eyes, use the craft knife to cut the cork in half. Cut a section from each piece, as shown, to make a flat edge (a parent's job). Paint the corks and let them dry, then glue on googly eyes. Glue the flat edge of the eyes to the bottle.

For tons of great ideas you can check out the Crafts Made From Recyclables List on the Family Fun Magazine website.
