Start a Beautiful Junk collection: Find a large box or shopping bag and label it "Beautiful Junk". Get in the habit of throwing into it any "garbage" or recyclables that the children might be able to re-use for crafts. For example: magazines, junk mail, egg cartons, ribbon, wrapping paper, toilet tissue tubes, shoe boxes, cereal boxes, aluminum pie plates, plastic containers and pop bottles, fabric, yarn etc...
Now you will always have a supply of craft and building materials ready for rainy days.
