If you get yourself some Modge Podge (I hope you are getting 40% coupons at Michaels) you can make fabulous crafts from even the smallest scraps. We have turned plastic bottles into vases. done flower pots, pillar candles. cigar boxes, etc. You could crazy "quilt" an old chest, dresser, etc. Kids love it because it's easy and satisfying. I think this is "upcycling"!
