When packing for a long trip, the kiddos always bring at least one special stuffed animal with them. As you know, the kiddos love projects. So why not make a recycled animal house for their stuffed animals to sleep in while in the car.
To make your own recycled animal house, you will need:
- A clean yogurt container with a lid
- String – any kind should work
- Lots of colorful tape – we used colorful electrical tape from the dollar store.
The kiddos used colorful tape to decorate the outside of the yogurt container. Tape is a great option for decorating in the car since it is mess free plus kids love it.
These little cuties swung from the hooks, above each kid. The kiddos loved that their special recycled animal houses. Each of the stuffed animals had a colorful home to sleep in, which made the kids happy. I loved that the kiddos always knew where their stuffed animals were. No more searching for lost animals while we were driving!
They also made little blankets, pillows and clothing for their animals from felt. Felt is a great material for kids to work with. It is easy to cut, it does not fray and it comes in a variety of wonderful colors. So fun!
