  • Recycling kids

    No, not really as it sounds.....! I just came across this http://www.startimagining.co.uk/about an incentive to bring back creative recycling crafts to children in schools. Thought I'd share.

        Didn't good old Val Singleton start this on Blue Peter ? We always seemed to be using 'rubbish' to make all the wonderful creations they came up with long before it got all posh and called itself upcycling / recycling/ steampunk etc etc.

                    Do you remember the Wombles as well. They used to look after the environment by recycling other peoples rubbish, way before it became popular.

                      Thanks for this, I work at an Adventure Playground, and we love to use old bits and bobs in our art activities. I'm sure there will be a few ideas I can take from this site

                        I remember Blue Peter and playing with old boxes etc as a kid. My six year old niece loves to make things and will play hours with old boxes, paper, paint and sticky tape etc. I think some schools have banned toilet roll middles though on hygiene grounds.

                        This site may be of use to some of you wanting to make stuff with kids.

                          Yep, they have. We now just use the middles from kitchen rolls. Same idea, but no need to worry about hygiene. Thanjks for the extra link.
