Reduce, Reuse and Recycle !!
Everyone is a fan of being green and recycling these days, preschoolers have this amazing knack for recycling everything over and over - in great new ways. Here are two great recycling projects which produce wonderful results.
The second project today is a little more crazy and time consuming. I did this project months ago with my class and would actually recommend doing it with a smaller group... compared to my twenty kiddos. Unfortunately when I did the project I didn't take pictures, thankfully I was able to find one on the web that will give you an solid concept of the project. Rolled newspaper forts... Take 4-5 sheets of newspaper laying on top of each other. Roll the paper at a diagonal from corner to corner. Tape it together with masking tape to form a stick. Make at least 10 - 15 of these paper sticks. Once the sticks are made use more masking tape (you'll use nearly a roll for this project) to tape them together and create joints.
