Perhaps the ultimate recycled artform! I found these creative creatures scattered on a park lawn near the beach and had to snap a photo of this guy in particular. Isn't he charming? Some creative soul made great use of the coconut husks that had fallen from nearby palm trees.
Why not look around YOUR environment and use this as an inspiration. Take a nature walk with your children and see what you can create from rocks, pinecones, driftwood, and your own particular natural resources.
