Upcycled Wooden Ice Cream Stick Recipe Holder Project

Upcycle Recipe HolderStep by step instructions showing you how to make your own recycled bird feeder using Upcycled Ice Cream Sticks.

This is a fun craft to do, children will love getting their hands messy with this one, as well as being fun to make, it is eco-friendly and a fun Upcycling project for kids to learn from.
Kids could also spend the day collecting 'scrap' ice-cream sticks and clean their environment, but do remember to wash them off properly after collecting them, (the sticks, as well as your kid's hands). They cost next to nothing and oftentimes they come with a cold treat on the end.

It is also a great Mother's Day craft for kids to make. It is a craft suitable for four year olds and up. Follow our easy step by step instructions to make your own recycled bread holder.
