Summer's a great time to teach your kids about recycling in a creative, fun way! Help them gather everyday recycled items that you find around the house: cardboard, paper towel rolls, tin cans, jars, egg cartons. Then put them to work to make a unique 3D art masterpiece that will be entered into the FunArtBus Eco-Craft Contest.
The winner of the contest will receive a Private, 2-hour FUN ART party for 6 at The Art Studio@ YouGottaHaveArt.
Original artwork or photos of their creations should be mailed to: Publisher, Pink Elephants & Flying Friends, PO Box 190, Edgewater, NJ 07020 no later than August 15.
FunArtBus is devoted to promoting creativity and self-expression... and dedicated to raising awareness about our environment by encouraging kids everywhere to do eco-friendly crafts.
Kids will have the opportunity to work on ARTrageous Recyclables projects or Trash to Treasure creations. Either way, their creative juices will start to flow with a wide assortment of "trash" that will quickly become their new-found "treasures."
It is their goal that these activities will empower kids to express their innate creativity while encouraging them to live a "greener" lifestyle. By teaching them to become aware at a young age, they can build lifelong habits – which will eventually make a major difference in the future of our precious earth.
