Recycle Trees

We decided to use our trash stash for this week's craft. These are items that would otherwise get tossed, and we turned them into a good half hour of creativity. Here are the results:
toilet paper/paper towel roll
scrap green paper from food packaging, junk mail, old magazines, and previous art projects (we also have straws and rubber bands in there)

Cut green paper in any shape
Glue the paper to the top of your toilet paper rollWe had a bit of bark from a coconut tree we had gathered at the seawall the day before. It got glued on as the bark of our recycle tree.

I just found this link online:
It is an April calendar talking about Earth Day. My kids immediately started asking questions because Big Bird is at the top of the calendar. It gave me a good opportunity to talk about taking care of the earth.
