Who doesn’t love a good backyard craft? We know we do. And if you care about the planet, you may have decided to try upcycling something during your craft projects. In case you’re unaware, “upcycling” means recycling giving something old a glow-up. Instead of throwing away something and adding to the landfills, you get to repurpose something. An added bonus is that you might even save money in the process. On today’s list on Home Addict, we’re going to focus on projects specifically for your backyard. Here are some fun projects you might love to make this summer for some backyard fun.
Pool Noodle Water Works
A lot of people have pool noodles lying around, and they’re not sure what to do with it. Or they see them at Dollar Tree and wonder what they can do as a craft upcycling them into something for summer time fun. This idea came from the We’re Greenly blog. They have repurposed plastic piping that they probably purchased from Home Depot. This made a framework for water to go through the water hose and into this fun device. Now, the kids can ride her bicycle through the device and get word on a summer day. As you can see in the photo, they cut up the noodles for a striped color look. But you could keep solid colors just to give them a bumper while using the water toy.
