art from the recycle bin
Raided my recycle bin at home and the basket in the classroom this morning. My littles are pretty good about recycling at school so they were very interested in knowing why I was retrieving things from their bin. They were excited when they found out we were going to use all of the "junk" to create paintings. I showed them how to dip the items in paint and press it on paper. Some things made a better print if they painted the object with a paintbrush and then pressed it on the paper. One little painted the entire salt container and then rolled it down his paper. The results were cute and the process itself was a huge hit. The art table was the most popular place in the room today.
