Way too often, toys are bought, used for a few days and then thrown away, only to end up in a landfill for hundreds of years. Instead of giving in to your child´s next tantrum, why don´t you tell him that instead of buying a toy, you´ll make one together! Making toys using recycled materials can be a lot of fun, benefiting you, your wallet, your kid and of course, the envronment. Your child will really appreciate the toy that he has made all by themselves!
In this OneHowTo article we provide some examples on how to make toys using recycled material.

A very original idea is to make trucks with plastic bottles and bottle caps. The kind of bottles you need are those that often contain detergent, soaps, softner, etc. The handle of the jug will serve as a window, but you will also able to make more holes with the help of a utility knife. For the wheels we will use the tops and we will attach them with glue.
You can decorate the truck with adhesive tape or with permanent markers or paint them to turn them into an ambulance, a fire truck, a pizza delivery van, etc.

Another option to make a toy is to re-use boxes of soft cheese, plastic egg boxes and lollie sticks. These easily-found-at-home items can be transformed into an alien spacecraft! To do so, you will have to:
• Cut out one of the compartments of the plastic egg box and make a hole of the same size in the soft cheese cardboard box so that one tightly fits in the other;
• In the other part of the soft cheese box it will be necessary to make four holes to insert the ice cream sticks; you can do this with sharp scissors or a utility knife;
• To make the alien, find a top made of cork or plastic or another similar item that fits inside the ship;
• To decorate the UFO and its driver, use water based paint, adhesives, etc.

A toy that delights children that can be made with recycled material is a multi storey parking lot where they can play with their toy cars. To make this, you will need moldable cardboard, like that used for boxes.
• Mark the path that the cars will follow.
• Make a cut in the ramp areas used to connect the top and lower floor.
• By joining both cardboard platforms, create the upstream and downstream paths through which the toy vehicles will transit. It is also possible to place the cardboard platforms on stairs and unite each step with ramps
