Recycling Tips for Art Play

Posted by LeLe Sims on

Making art with repurposed materials is easy. But getting organized is not. These tips can help you sort out the best items and get started.

RECYCLING TIPS

Start by setting aside the below materials:

  • cardboard box
  • recycled string
  • bottle tops
  • plastic containers
  • natural materials

Prepping the material will help you save time.  

  • Bottles

    • Recyclable if mouth is smaller than base

    • Empty, rinse, dry, and reattach lids

  • Jugs

    • Recyclable if mouth is smaller than base

    • Empty, rinse, dry, and reattach lids

    • Examples: milk, soda, laundry, shampoo, contact solution

  • Tubs

    • Make sure to reattach lid after rinsing (DO NOT place containers inside of other containers)

    • Empty, rinse, dry, and reattach lids

 

Tossing trash

I find that it's helpful to have a small jar by the kitchen sink and a spare laundry basket, both designated for recyclables meant for art projects. Extending the life of an object is already a creative learning moment for both you and your mini artist. What other ways do you create a greener art space?
