One Man's Trash is Another Man's Art Project
Anyways, I was in my classroom today for several hours going though all of the cabinets of supplies and doing inventory. I started getting sad because every time I thought of a cool project I noticed I was missing an ingredient. Or I didn't have enough for the hundreds of students I see in a week.
So I thought I'd appeal to you for help.
If you live in the Houston or Dallas/Fort Worth area, or have a way to get it to me, I need your weird but usable odds and ends! Your industrial left overs! Your grandmother's 2 ton collection of yarn and buttons. Beads, foam packing peanuts, blank ball caps, restaurant supplies, anything you think we could use in art.
One of my greatest connections ever was a stationary/ paper company that gave me tons of paper, envelopes and misprinted products. Another great resource was a pizza store that had closed. I got tons of pizza boxes and chinese take out boxes, etc.
If you have a family business or know of anybody with supplies/ materials like this, or even have a massive amount of crafty stuff yourself, we would be thrilled to have it for our classroom!!
If you are in the Houston or DFW area I can pick it up. Help me spread the word please. I know someone out there has connections!
Thank you bloggy buddies!
