Recycled Robots

Here's another project from this summer's Recycled Art camp. I took this idea from the Deep Space Sparkle site— one of my favorites! The kids each worked on a 12x18 colored paper of their choice and printed using recycled materials such as empty spools of thread, pop lids, paper tubes etc. After their prints were dry they selected from the box of recycled goodies I've been amassing for the past few months. Can you see any product placement? We talked about trying not to think of packaging as the product it used to hold, but as lovely choices for shapes and colors. We also discussed the thought, time and money put into packaging—a great reason to take advantage of its use as art materials!
