FUNtastic! Recycled Box Art


Created for local elementary school's Eco-Fest

If you tend to do a lot of online shopping, chances are you have a lot of cardboard boxes that need to be recycled. Why not use those boxes as canvases for artwork! Eco-art is a great way to teach your kids how to create a new use for things you don’t need anymore. You can cut the boxes down to any size you like and decorate them: create signs for sporting events, door hangers, wall art, picture frames, and any other creative idea you can think of!

Suggested Supplies:

Cardboard boxes

Box cutter (adults only for cutting the boxes)

Washable paint

Glitter pens/glue

Stencils

Ribbon or yarn for hanging (if applicable)
