recycling art

Schools and kindergartens produce large amounts of waste paper. If this is collected, it can be used to create wonderful and cost-efficient artworks which decorate the school and may even have good practical uses. For example, mosaic patterns can be integrated in a seating bench or the floor of the school playground, and lanterns can be hung around the school and then taken back home. Nature is full of small bugs and other creepy crawlies. Their shapes can be transformed into funny creatures by the children, using their imagination together with paper mâché and balloons. There are no limits to imagination - a dragon could be created out of old milk cartons, or empty toilet paper rolls and other packaging could be reused and transformed into a fun marble run. Not only can paper and cardboard be recycled, but also ‘upcycled’ to artistic and fun designs and construction.
