Hello!!
I was wondering if anyone could help me!
I would like to know if you have any idea of what I could do with this packages, some things to try with the kids to make them sensitive for the politics of recycling and reusing!









Thank you for your time!!******

First, i must say you have way cuter milk carton thingies than we do. hmmm. here's a few random ideas:
Make little purses- like cut them in half down to the bottom, then glue a little piece of fabric on each side, then hole punch 4 little holes in the top, and have them bead with those kiddie beads [i forget the name] on some string and tie it for handles. I'm not sure if it would work. looked kinda cute in my mind. you could even use lie recycled fabric from like to small shirts and beads from an old necklace or something. they could also paint the box first.

Vase- [yes, i think of girlie projects] cut off the top and have them paint it. Then maybe you can take pipe cleaners and some "recycled" tissue paper from gifts or some scrap construction paper and make those little flowers like they make with tissue paper. They can look really cool with the comics section of an old newspaper too.

I was thinking crafty and younger kids. so i hope they might have helped =]

My first Ideia was also to make vases! like the ones you put a bean wrapped in cotton and some drops of water to watch it grow to a plant!

Also the purse would be nice!

I have to figure out something more... to really improve the activiteis in primary school so that they can take home to their parents and slowly start to re-use and recyle pacakes...

Thanks***

make little box cars, like stick a straw or something through the box and put buttons or something for wheels, and then have a race? and a contest for best decorated? or maybe the same idea but make boats?

a bit like the vase idea, but...paint them, make 'em look pretty, and then fill them with soil and seeds...planters!

this is what the classroom teachers do with the kids at my school (i'm the librarian) , and they love it. herbs work well, as some are pretty easy to grow. hooray for recycling!
