Recycled Art Projects Gallery

Go green and get creative! This gallery is full of fun ways to reuse old newspapers and magazines, egg cartons, milk jugs, fabric scraps, soda cans, ice cream sticks, and more for new art projects. These art activities are perfect for Earth Day and other holidays, and they'll show elementary and intermediate students how common items can be reused and recycled. You'll find the perfect activity to celebrate America Recycles Day (November 15). To learn more about reusing materials and reducing waste, read Green Classroom Practices That Save Money.
