💡Skills: Creating art from recyclable materials builds your little artist’s creativity and helps him or her think about how to take care of our Earth.
Famous artists create art from recyclable materials like bottle caps, car parts, paper tubes, and old magazines. You and your child can be artists who care about the Earth and create a masterpiece from things you find in your recycling bins.
☑ Recyclable materials, like empty egg cartons or cereal boxes
☑ Craft materials you have at home like paint, glue, tape, and string
Here’s how to explain this activity to your child:
If this is too easy, have your little artist make a gallery of his or her art created using recyclable objects. Write down an explanation of each masterpiece! If you want to take a simpler approach, try having your child pick one object — like an empty egg carton — and color it with markers or crayons!
