Recycled Milk Carton "Rolling" Coin Bank Craft

Pin It

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

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


Directions:
  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.
