I love watching children create. But it wasn't until I became a blogger that I realized how much opportunity there was for creating right in the recycle bin. So I decided to put together a series to celebrate the things our kids can make with recyclables. Project: Recycle and Create celebrates recycling, reusing, and creativity.
Each month a great group of bloggers and myself will focus on a different material. I hope you'll join us in seeing what we can come up with. It need not be fancy and child-made ideas are encouraged.
So how can you join us? (Ooh, I was hoping you'd ask!)
Step 1: Make something using the material of the month and anything else you need to make it work. Anything made for, by, or with children is welcome!
Step 2: Share! Come on back to this blog or any of the co-hosts to add your post to the linky or stop by the P is for Preschooler Facebook page and share a photo of what you came up with.
That's it. Easy, right? (That was the idea!)
There is also a Project: Recycle and Create Pinterest board, so be sure you're following to keep up on all the great ideas!
