Recycled Newspaper Craft
Oh that's rubbish!
Newspaper is a commonly found waste material that children can use to create costume pieces or decorations. We help children to make faerie wings, pirate hats, head bands and wall hangings.
This activity is a valuable 'reuse' exercise that they can do again from home.
We use a minimal amount of staples or glue so the paper can be recycled once again.
