Earth Day is celebrated on April 22 and this is a great time to find ways to reduce, reuse and recycle to clean up our planet. Here’s one of the many household items you can repurpose into something new and handy.


  • Cereal Box
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Ruler
  • Magazines, newspaper or wrapping paper


  • Using the ruler, make a mark 5" up on one the side of the cereal box.
  • On the front of the box, draw a diagonal line from the opposite top corner down to the 5" mark. Repeat on the back of the box.
  • Cut from the top of the box down to the mark on the side. Repeat on the back side.
  • Cover the book holder in newspaper or wrapping paper.
  • Have fun decorating your new book holder.

Happy Earth Day!
