Even though I love to scrap and make cards, I've really never considered myself too "crafty" beyond those things...but I was really challenged this past week, when Ellie's kindergarten class needed to decorate a box for recycling (actually "Terracycling" which takes things that typically aren't recycled like cereal bags, glue containers and candy wrappers---but our school does Terracycling and receives about 2 cents for each item sent in, so they've made it a big classroom project). Anyway...her class decided that they wanted to make a dog, and the teacher asked me to be in charge of making it happen (with all recycled products). This was definitely a challenge...but I have to say, I'm quite happy with the results. And the kids love it!
So, here's T.C. (stands for Terracycle) the WONDER dog...
he's a sheepdog/mutt!!!
I used newspaper, cardstock scraps, styrofoam plate, plastic lid, toilet paper roll (for tail), soup cans (for feet), and cardboard
The side view...check out the cut little tail!
Ellie loved the result too!
*Disclaimer-Ellie dressed herself...as "Pippi Longstocking" today (we're reading this to her this week).
I'm learning to pick my battles:o)
