"Over the years I have made several of these. Speaking from personal experience, I can tell you that these boxes -when used in the pictured position- are not strong enough on their own to hold very many books or magazines for very long. Eventually they will sag and become an eyesore. Preventing the eyesore from happening is simple - turn the boxes on their side once they are completed, and Voila! They are an EXCELLENT way to wrangle in all that clutter and chaos we often find throughout our home and office. There is also another way to make them strong and that is to REINFORCE THEM. Personally, I like to do this when I need to use the boxes for flimsier items like loose papers that have a tendency to curl on their edges if stored on their sides or when not packed tightly. Reinforcing the boxes means you can put a lot more weight into them even while they are laying flat like they are in the picture. I reinforce my boxes with a very thin wood that can be purchased at almost any hardware store - it is called Louon (my spelling is probably off but it is pronounced LEW-ON). It is very cost-effective and extremely easy to work with. Add to this that it is VERY VERSATILE and you have a great solution to making even very flimsy projects much more stable. I hope this helps! BTW USPS boxes are legal to use BUT ONLY if you PURCHASED them OR they are USED. IF you are thinking about using new boxes that were FREE from the USPS Priority Mail Services - then you would be breaking the law. New FREE Boxes MUST be used only for Mail. Boxes that are Purchased or Used should be OK."

Dive into the recycling bin to find everything you need to make this Soup Can Bowling game from Plaid!  This is a great craft for summer vacation!  You can bring it out during picnics, BBQ's, and family reunions.  Make as many can "pins" as you want!

This brilliant and adorable recycled craft for kids is the perfect Earth Day craft, because it does double duty. Perfect for Earth Day crafts, you can create these recycled ideas before playing a fun and exciting game of pool. Kids will love making their own toys, allowing you to teach them all about the joys of reusing and recycling materials. If you do not have enough soup cans on hand, this could easily be redone as a toilet paper tube or plastic bottle craft with the right amount ingenuity.

What a fun idea using the soup cans! I love the bright colors! My kids and I have used plastic water bottles with a couple of pebbles placed inside to help weight the bottles to keep them upright. Our hallway works as the "bowling alley" the narrow space helping to contain the pins and direct the ball.
