Scrap Faces

To connect with the Science, the Primaries are learning about how artists can use recycled and cast off materials to make art.  We are watching a video about an artist who goes to the scrap and junkyard to find art materials.  We are making our own mask made out of scraps:  bottle caps, wood pieces, plastic parts.  Reading Rainbow Stay Away From the Junkyard 

hilarious!  We used these donated medicine lids.

So cool! Reminds me of My Best Friend is as Sharp as a Pencil the book!

I agree, very cool recycling. Great job.:)

I'll have to check out that book, thank you.

These are great! Love the medicine lids. I too get random stuff donated sometimes! I once got two huge boxes each full of 200 or so purple disposable medical scrubs. When the kids wore them, my room looked like a Barney episode gone wrong!

Natalie, I'd love to see a picture of the purple clothed kids. :)
