DIY With Ruby


If you’re looking for ways to keep your youngsters busy (and out of your hair) this summer, look no further than MakeItRuby.com, a cool new site that features more than 100 fun, kid-friendly projects that utilize at least one of the three rules of environmental friendliness – reuse, renew, repurpose.

With a new project every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, your kids will keep busy all summer and have something green and glorious to show for it come fall.

Some of my favorites include the “Make a Difference Aluminum Water Bottle,” “Fashionista Canvas Bag,” “Egghead Window Sill Garden," “Puppy Stylin' Camera Case,” and “Fab Japanese Bookends.” Projects are broken down into categories including Fashion, Ruby’s Room, My Plan-it, Treasure Chest, Gifts that Smile, and Hobbies.

Ruby’s also got a few games, contests and prizes up her very creative sleeve. So for all you DIY do-gooders out there, simply click here for tons of creative kid-friendly, parent-approved projects.
