recycling for art

We have figured out a great way to recycle with out just throwing something in the recycle bin.

Old tv trays, trays from Lunchables and similar plastic trays work great for art work. Especially the ones that have separate sections.

They can be used as paint pallets. I pour some paint of different colors in each section and the kids can choose to mix them up or keep them separate.

We have used them to put beads in the separate by color.

To squirt some glue in when we are using q-tips to glue objects together.

I'm sure there are lots of other ideas too.

When we are done with them we can choose, depending on how dirty they got, on weather to throw them out or rinse them out to use them again.
