Do you do lots of recycling?
I really hope that you do,
But those empty wrappers and packets
Can be used for other things too!

Getting Started:

  • Tape or glue boxes and cylinders together to make space age cities, trains, animals or abstract sculptures.
  • Paint your creation and stick on any collage materials such as tinfoil.
  • You can string the painted recycling pieces together.


What do you have in your recycling bin? You can use anything, just make sure it’s clean and has no sharp edges!
