10 Genius Ways to Reuse Kids’ Stuff

Do you have old kids' stuff just piling up and collecting dust? Here are 10 genius ways to upcycle those kid and baby items you no longer use.

Let It Glow

Let those lonely and broken crayons shine again by upcycling them into beautiful rainbow candles.

Take a Seat

Is that old crib taking up space for other stuff in your garage? Well, put it to good use! With some elbow grease and a few power tools, you can make a beautiful bench for your home.

Stuff It

Socks losing their mate are an inevitable part of childhood. However, instead of getting frustrated and tossing them in the trash, make a cuddly plush snake from the mismatched sets.

Flower Power

Spring is here, and the best way to celebrate is by keeping a bouquet of fresh flowers on the table. You can make miniature bouquets by using old glass baby food jars for vases. Simply dip the bottom of the jars into a bright paint color of your choice and let it dry for a few hours. Style a tiny floral arrangement for a pop of color and display them somewhere they can be admired.

A Tisket, A Tasket

Do you have what feels like a never-ending supply of empty diaper boxes? Repurpose them into sleek straw baskets to make extra storage for all of your kid's stuff.

Making Memories

Old kids' clothing piles up and takes the most space. Before you get ready to donate it, pick out your favorite pieces of clothing to make into a memory quilt. It will be a cherished heirloom for years to come.

Drum Roll, Please

Instead of tossing those used formula cans, recycle them into something fun and useful. With some fabric, string and a good imagination, you can turn them into colorful drums.

Make it a Truckulent

Spruce up your garden by adding a succulent truck. Simply snag a toy truck from your kid's toy box and plant your succulents in the bed of the truck. It will add a touch of whimsy to your space.

Hanging Out

Turn those plastic animal figurines into a wall hook. It only takes a few supplies and tools to make. When you finish, hang keys, jewelry, hats and more from the animal wall hook. Hooray for stylish and FUNctional home decor!

Dust Buster

Use those dingy burp cloths and stained T-shirts to make a reusable duster. All you need is the cloth, a duster handle and some thread. Whip it together, and start dusting off the rest of your stuff you can repurpose!
