Upcycling: From Trash to Treasure

We’re having way too much fun at the Central library. Every other Saturday I’ve been joined by a wonderful group of kids as we make crafts out of items we’d normally have thrown away. We’ve been coming up with all kinds of creative ways to reuse common household items. In the past we’ve worked with paper roles, recycling book paper, magazines, packing paper, boxes, holiday cards, and all kinds of fun items. Making all kinds of fun crafts to take home.

While I’ve loved every week, I’m especially excited about this week’s craft. We’ll be making funky rings using juice box tabs. This activity will really give the kids a chance to stretch their imaginations and try all kinds of funky, wearable designs. As you can see from the picture, the possibilities are almost endless and I’m sure the kids will manage to outdo me!

The program runs from 3-4 pm this Saturday, April 5th. No registration is required and all are welcome. A warning to the parents that there are small parts that may be choking hazards for younger children so this craft is recommended for ages 4 and up. For more information please call Miss Kate at 519-255-6770 x. 4434. I’m looking forward to seeing you and your wonderful creations!
