We all have them: old toys that we or our kids used to play with that now just kind of lay around the house, being stored in some box in the attic and collecting dust for all eternity. Okay, so maybe I'm being a little bit dramatic here but it's always a shame for me to see those old toys that I used to love, doing nothing. 

That's why I was SO happy to see one of my favorite sites, ApartmentTherapy.com, talk about all of the ways we can actually repurpose those old toys to decorate the home. Below are some of my favorites—including what to do with an unused slinky! I mean, who doesn't have one of those? And aren't you tired of it just wasting time, being stored? Take a look at these crafts because there's definitely at least one you'll fall in love with.
