Ok. I've divided the classes up into common items that are thrown out without a thought. I'm trying to use things that they will think are 'cool' in hopes that it gets them thinking more about the environment. and it's a mixed class so I don't know that the boys will be up for crochetting, as awesome as that would be.
Class 1: Overview on waste and our environment. Compare the resources used for 'recycling' versus us doing our own 'reusing' when we can.
Subsequent classes, and here is where I need help coming up with easy to learn in one day crafts for these items
1.Cardboard boxes (cereal?)- Flat File folders, standing folder box, Notebook cover wth glued or spiral binding.
2 Glass Jars/Bottles-Cut into Bowls, glasses, vases, candle holders?
3. Old Jeans/ Tshirts - Rugs, Bags, Coasters, Pocket on the fridge?
4. Dryer Lint- Fire Starters. Lint Clay?
5. Tin Cans-
6. Wine Corks- coark board,trivet, stamps?
7. Coke Cans-
If you can think of something cool for any of these...
