It is amazing what great things you can find in your recycling bin! Our momstown Milton mamas and kids had a wonderful time exploring and painting using recycled materials for crafts from the Blue Bin at our Recycled Treasures program.
We used plastic bottles, paper tubes, left over Easter grass, Christmas tinsel, corks, and the spongy wrap that protects Asian pears in the supermarket. All of these different finds made for some fun exploration with paint on a beautiful spring morning!
We spread out some craft paper on the fence and attached it with masking tape, and also had paper out on a play table for kids who preferred painting on a surface. The little ones had a great time choosing from the variety of tools and bright paint colours.
Soon we had a beautiful abstract painting and lots of messy kids! Everyone was proud of their creations, and enjoyed seeing the different shapes that the different objects made on the paper.
Some of the little artists discovered that the plastic bottles created a flower on the paper, and then added colourful centres with the corks. They made some beautiful paintings!
Our Recycled Treasures morning eventually became a fun playdate, with some kids concentrating on painting while others preferred the sand box, pool, or snack table. It was a relaxed and fun morning for the kids and moms alike. It is so wonderful to discover new, easy and inexpensive ways to be creative with children.
Thanks for coming out, everyone!
