So, here is our little poem...sing it like a song...hum it every day!

A better world
is in your hands
Just reduce the stress
upon our lands
Help keep it clean

Think before you do
from beginning to end!

Creative Ways To Reuse Kids School Work

No don't throw!  Repurpose Recycle, Reuse, Remember.  What to do with kids art, compositions and homework. 


Some of your kids schoolwork and artwork is surely worth saving.  How can you make it last longer, display it, reuse it or repurpose it?

Make a book.
For lasting memories, take choice pieces of schoolwork and enjoy it for years to come.  Make a book for each school year or for each school. For instance a book for  elementary, junior high, high school.
