After a brief hiatus, Play Learning Tuesday is back!!! During our holidays, a craft that we had done earlier broke into pieces, rather strands. I'm talking about a spider that we made (you can read about how we made it here). I went into the room one day to see the mischief that EV and AA had gone into. They had just loosened the strands of the spider, and the pieces and pieces of wool were scattered all around the floor. It sure was a mess.
As usual, I wasn't willing to just throw away the wool. It would be such a waste. I was confident that a use will come along one day, so I hoarded all the wool strands into my little recycle box, which also contained other items like egg cartons and milk bottles, just waiting to be created into something fun, something creative, or something for learning.
So it came to be that EV and I were revising some letters. We decided to use the wool to create the letters, so EV could also practise her letter formation in a fun way.
Plus, we got to recycle the wool strands.
It's great to be a hoarder after all.
Are you using any recycled materials in your fun, play learning activities?
