Reusable and Recyclable Materials Request

Dear Families,

I am writing you once again to request that you empty your recycle bins and old craft buckets to assist in our creation of collages and sculptures by reusing everyday objects. Our upcoming lessons will involve the use of papier-mâché and other sculptural materials, which will be nicely complemented by items found around the home. The types of items we need include the following:

· Bottle caps
· Coffee cans
· Buttons
· Cloth scraps
· Ribbon and thread
· Spools
· Wrapping paper
· Tissue paper
· Wood scraps
· Small sticks
· Decorative napkins
· Egg cartons
· Newspaper
· Old puzzle pieces
· Wood scraps
· Cardboard
· Feathers
· Cotton balls
· Masking or Duct tape
· Rope
· Beads
· Nuts and bolts
· Plastic plant pots
· Storage bins
· Macaroni
· Cardboard tubes (like from toilet paper, paper towels or wrapping paper)
· Chopsticks or wooden skewers
· Soda can tops

I will be accepting these on an ongoing basis throughout the year. Any contribution you can make, large or small, would be greatly appreciated. Please do not feel the need to go out and buy anything. As always, thank you for your support and positive attitudes!

Stay creative!
Mrs. DiSalle
