As you know, we homeschool and we are part of a homeschool co-op as well as a homeschool support group. My kids are really enjoying the homeschool co-op, just like I knew they would. One of their favorite classes at co-op is the Recycled Art Class. Since I assist in the class, I can understand why! It really is great fun!
Here’s just a few of the projects that Sister has completed…
In the *eh hem* unlikely event that you can’t identify what they are, that is an owl made from a pine cone, feathers, and cotton balls; an autum tree made from recycled paper and pieces of an old puzzle; and a farm scene made from scraps of yarn, scraps of paper, and newspaper.
We’ve also made the earth from an old vacuum box, butterfly mobiles out of recycled paper and twigs, and a few other things. Oh my glue! Have we ever used a lot of glue, and we’re not even half way through the year!
It’s a good thing I can save on Arts & Crafts and receive Free Delivery on orders over $79 at Discount School Supply! I love their clearance blow out prices and the fact that I can save up to 70% off retail! Their construction paper is just 97 cents for 50 sheet packages! Oh, yah, and 30 Elmer’s Glue Sticks? Just $14.99!!! Score!
Speaking of art projects… how long do you keep your kids art projects before tossing them out? What is a reasonable amount of time?
