Upcycle

Upcycle

This workshop is all about teaching the kids how to help preserving the nature through creating something beautiful and useful from materials like plastic bottles, shoe boxes, cans, cardboard.

The goal is to attract as many children as possible from various age groups and to teach them how to separate the garbage in the five basic containers - paper, glass, plastic, metal, mixed. There are several interactive games where kids and parents work together to create things like badges from caps or from flyers, make a jewelry box or lady's bag from a plastic bottles, bird house from cardboard and plastic.

Often the kids come up with greater ideas of creations, so they could do whatever they like from the recycled materials. In the end of the work we separate the redundant material in the containers, which are decorated by the kids who love to draw.

Of course we encourage the theme of the pictures to be recycling and what could be made of recycling materials.
