Big Sister brought home a class assignment... Make something out of recycled objects. What??? OMG... Well, recently her class took a field trip to the local recycle facility and I'm certain this project brings the learning full circle. We had a lot of fun with the project. We hope you enjoy our journey.
Step 1: What the heck do we make?
Step 2: Planning...Let's begin
Step 3: The Body... Legs
Step 4: The Body... Arms
Step 5: Hands
Step 6: Face
Step 7: Head and Final Construction
Step 8: Hair
What We Learned?
Well that's it! It was a lot of fun and it was a great opportunity for my daughter and I to spend time together working on something really cool. We hope that we inspire other parents who may feel a bit apprehensive about a seemingly daunting task such as this homework assignment.
It's really important to provide "organic" experiences by taking your child places that will stimulate their 5 senses.
