Five Things Friday: Upcycling to Create a Toy

I hate waste and little B loves to create new things from odds and ends he’s found around the home.  He’s got a wonderful imagination and I want to do all I can to encourage that.  These ideas should inspire you to upcycle items that you might have found in your decluttering last week.

2.  Upcycle Us has this workbench – perfect for you little builder.
