I run a summer nature camp, and I'd like to phase out crafts with styrofoam and paper plates next year.  Any suggestions for fun crafts with natural or recycled materials (preferably with a nature theme)?  Website/book recommendations would be welcome as well.

Thanks!

There are also a lot of options to recycle egg cartons or empty containers if you start collecting them now.
