Recycle and Upcycle

Today for Discovery we explored how we can look after our school and our local environment by recycling and upcycling rubbish stuff to create new things we can use.

Magazine strip collage heart magnets. We used the same method that I posted about here.

Painted rock paper-weights.

Yoghurt container baskets.

Ice-cream lid name tags.

The name tags were a great independent activity. I cut the tags out before our session and the children punched a hole for the pipe-cleaner and threaded on some beads. They used a vivid to write their name on their tag and attached it to their bags. By the end of our Discovery session lots of bags in our cloak-bay had a sweet recycled name tag hanging from them.
