We made wall hangings with cardboard looms and some yarn pieces. We asked the moms and grand-moms to please donate scraps of yarn. Once done, we inserted a twig on top. Then we tied off the ends and added old beads and shells.
Reused and recycled material in crafts is no longer a choice, but an idea who's time has come. We have many materials that with a bit of thought can be reused,recycled or uncycled to create something new, thus reduce waste.
My group of 30 children have fun creating and imagining activities reusing materials and giving them new meaning.
