Cardboard is an endless canvas of recycling fun. Make these cardboard rings with friends for the perfect Earth-friendly craft.


  • cereal box or other thin cardboard
  • marker
  • scissors
  • paint and brushes
  • hot glue gun



    1. Draw your favorite shapes onto your cardboard.

    2. Cut out the shapes, along with a short thin strip of cardboard to make each ring.

    3. Wrap the cardboard strip around your child's finger to mark the size, then hot glue in place and trim any excess.

    4. Paint your shape cutouts and hot glue them to the ring.
