Make Earth Friendly Art Using Recycled Materials!!You and your child can easily make beautiful earth friendly art using recycled materials found around the home! Read my description of how I created my "Celebrate Earth Day" Poster! Then let your imagination flow! Gather materials you can recycle from around your home!
Old artwork your child has made that can be cut up and re-used. Old letters, junk mail, brightly colored food wrappers, cardboard packaging, used stamps, coffee sleeves, boxes, used wrapping paper, and wrapping paper tubes can be used for collages and sculptures. Go on an Art Walk and look for twigs, leaves, flower petals, feathers, and whatever unexpected treasures you might find!
Cut photographs from magazines to add to your collage, or even turn the page upside down and find patches of color that you can use to make other things, like a portrait, a picture of the earth, or animals. Can that patch of red be cut up for petals on a flower? That crazy chartreuse color would be awesome as feathers on my tropical bird!
Draw pictures on brown paper grocery bags turned inside out, paint right on newspaper, or use the inside of a cut up cereal box for free re-useable cardboard. Cut your pictures out and paste to your art!
