Kids Recycled Craft Zone Sponsored by TARGET

Join the TARGET TEAM in creating some crafts that are Sustainably made by reusing recyclables. 

  • Bring your own, or recycle our cardboard or plastic egg containers to plant some seeds to take home and grow. (No Styrofoam please) Plastic tri-fold egg cartons make great green houses and can be used multiple times! Cardboard egg cartons can be planted right into the ground.
  • Save those toilet paper or paper towel rolls and make a bird feeder to feed, and identify your native birds. You can teach your kids about recycling by bringing your own rolls and transforming them on Kernersville Earth Day! We also have plenty of rolls to go around!
