4 Innovative Things to Do with Broken Toys


Being broken is an inevitable fate of toys. The items are meant to be played with, subjecting them to the wear and tear process. A toy that remains in a good condition, is a toy that has not lived up to its purpose. However, the question is, what do you do with broken toys? If there is sentimental value attached to some of them, you may hesitate to throw them in the trash. Instead, you may find many other possible uses for them. Here are four interesting ideas.

Room décor
Broken toys can be instantly converted into room decor. Most of them would look like antique items that could add more depth to your child's any room. For example, radio controlled helicopters or airplanes would look great hung from your ceiling. To make it happen, use nylon fishing line or string and tie it to three sides of the item to obtain balance. Dinosaur figures could blend in with book shelves in a library. A collection of dolls can be displayed in a display cabinet.

Paper weight
A small but heavy toy could be a perfect paper weight. It could help keep a pile of paper in place on top of a table. It would be more useful in a table that is beside a window. Aside from that purpose, it could also serve as an ornament, which could draw attention and amusement to your table. You may be delighted to see an old and favorite toy of yours evolve from being just a mere play item into an office accessory.

Trophy
Are you fond of organizing sports events to facilitate fun time for your kids? You may stage a simple tournament for your kids and their playmates. Use broken toys to create improvised trophies. Mount the item on top of a rectangular wood. Spray paint the new trophy with silver or metallic gold to make it appear really pricey. You could possibly make beautiful trophies, which might be more interesting than trophies sold commercially in the market. Since these would be made from toys the children have played with, they will find them more appealing.

Art pieces
Teach your kids how to make unique art pieces out of broken toys. Let the inner artist in you and your children come out by exploring creativity to create a different item out of every broken toy. Use paint, glitter, ribbon, and paper. The art pieces you make can be used as party favors or as souvenirs. The session could also serve as quality bonding time for you and your family.

Recycling is a popular activity these days. Broken toys can be recycled. Most of those are manufactured using plastic materials. Before they reach recycling stations, why not make something else out of those objects? Your creativity and resourcefulness can come up with new and interesting ideas.
