This year for Halloween we are making Bats. The children painted TP rolls Black. Then they traced their hands onto black paper and cut them out. They glued and decocated their bats and took them home to spook their parents!
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.
