Inspired by an idea from our reader Elisabeth Wagner, of Elgin, Illinois, this simple recycling project transforms an empty cereal box into a stroller-friendly art station.
To make one, cut the front and back covers off a large cereal box (we used an 18-ounce box) and tape the pieces together on three sides.
Punch two holes at the top for threading ribbon, then punch corresponding holes in a stack of coloring pages or recycled office paper.
Fill the pocket with some of the paper and tie the rest on the front. When your child needs a clean sheet, simply untie the ribbon and replace the decorated pages with new ones.
