Children’s Earth Day Crafts: Single-serve coffee pod crafts


Here’s something fun to do with the kids this Earth Day – make eco crafts out of k-cups and t-cups – you know those single-serve coffee discs that can’t be recycled.

What you need:

  1. K-cups, T-cups, any used single-serve plastic coffee pods/discs.
  2. Glue Gun

How to make them:

  1. Simply arrange your pods in any shape. Shapes from nature are especially relevant like birds, flowers and starfish.
  2. Glue gun them together (for younger children, parents and teachers will have to do the glue gunning)
  3. Post you relevant art (or have your parents post it) to raise awareness about the impact of single-use plastics on the environment.
