With 3 children I am constantly on the hunt to find activities to keep them entertained. If I can do this and teach them to be good advocates for the environment, well I have definitely made a difference in all of our lives.

Recently, I did this very thing after being inspired by Neutrogena Naturals Brightening Moisturizer to upcycle and create a Homemade Headband Holder with my daughter.
Neutrogena Naturals Brightening Moisturizer is a product that delivers superior results and uses pure ingredients that are naturally derived.
In addition, their packaging is designed with the goal of minimizing impact on the environment by using recyclable, post‐consumer materials and renewable resources whenever possible.

Plus, I can definitely get on board with a product that helps women, and strives to do the same for the environment.
Over the years I have continued to teach my kids about being good stewards for the Earth. Recently we explored a new way to recycle, and also discussed the importance of preserving natural locations in our area.
Plus as previously mentioned, my daughter and I developed an upcycling DIY project out of an Aluminum Vegetable Can. If you would like to recreate, the details are below!
What you will need to make a Homemade Headband Holder:
- Empty Aluminum Can
- Yarn (We used a rainbow design)
- Safety Scissors
- Construction Paper
- Small Binder Clip
First wash and dry an empty can and make sure there are no sharp pieces sticking out. Then, tie tightly and knot the yarn at one end and start wrapping the yarn tightly around the can completely covering the metal.
Do this until you almost reach the end and leave the last couple off yarn pieces loose. Next, cut off the yarn and loop it under the loose end under the yarn 2 or 3 times, pulling tightly.
Cut off any extra and use the glue to push the left over down on itself. You can then add the clip, flipping the top piece up and pushing the bottom piece under. This will be what you use to hang up the Homemade Headband Holder.
Next, cut out the construction paper to decorate the end of the can. My daughter used purple and pink to make hearts and glued them on.
Tip: When you put your nail into the wall, be sure to do so at a angle this allows it to stay level.
Once finished, this can be hung up on the wall and it is ready to be used immediately. In addition, you can also set this container on a desk to use for small toys or pens and pencils.
