This club will focus on making creative art with natural, recycled or pre-owned things that others might usually consider broken or regard as trash. Parents are encouraged to bring in old masks, hats clothes, broken jewelry etc. for the kids to cut apart for materials. Craft projects will be determined primarily by child interest, but some possible ideas are: Hair clips/Hairbands, Animal Ear Hair Clips, Flower and Feather pens, Dream Catchers/Wind Chimes, Arm and leg warmers, Masks, Redesigned Clothes, Technicolor Vases, and/or Notebook/Journals. Materials may include recycled paper, broken jewelry pieces, salvaged feathers, buttons, ribbons, mechanical parts and fabric from previously used items like clothes and toys.
