Polar Vortex Craft Club: 7 DIYs to Fight Cabin Fever

The weather is frightful, and so is the cabin fever that is brewing. The Polar Vortex Craft Club is a collection of crafts and games you and the kids can do at home, with supplies you already have on hand. The Knock ‘em Down Recycled Bottle game has been a big hit here. We use old recycled bottles and turn them into classic carnival games. It gets their energy out and puts our recycled bottles to use. It’s a win-win. Check out what projects you can make with computer paper, flashlights, tissue paper, and more.
