Recycled Milk Carton "Rolling" Coin Bank Craft

Pin It

Here's a cute coin bank craft you can make from recycled milk cartons.

  • 2 milk cartons
  • 2 letter sized pieces of cardboard/cereal box
  • drinking straws
  • glue
  • various colored construction paper
  • electrical tape
  • scissors
  • pipe cleaner

  1. Cut the top off of one milk carton. Wrap and decorate with construction paper.
  2. Cut the top off of another milk carton and cut in half lengthwise. Make a side for the open end. Cut two holes in the bottom and lace a pipe cleaner through for a handle. This will be the drawer of the bank to catch the coins.(Actually a drawer isn't absolutely necessary, but works better.
  3. Decorate one piece of letter cardboard with colored paper. Attach the other piece to the back of the bank as a support like an "A" frame.
  4. Cut lengths of drinking straws and glue to the front of the bank for the coins to roll down.
  5. Cut a hole at the bottom for the bank. 
  6. Decorate your bank with sea life or any other theme you like.
