Newspaper Art  for America Recycles Day!

America Recycles Day®, a program of Keep America Beautiful®, is a nationally recognized day dedicated to promoting and celebrating recycling in the United States. Every year on or around November 15 (America Recycles Day) event organizers educate neighbors, friends and colleagues about the wonders of recycling! Here at Discovery Gateway, we learned how you can make fun crafts with many different recyclable materials! One of those crafts is fun Newspaper Art!

Materials Needed:

  • Newspaper
  • Glue
  • Paint

Once you have all the supplies that you need, you can make anything you want! Here, we made fun flowers by taking a piece of newspaper and folding it back and forth, then pull it into a circle, glue and paint! You can also make cool negative pieces by gluing the newspaper to a cardboard piece and then gluing different shapes and designs like we did!

This fun activity is great to do with your family and will encourage your child to reuse or recycle and keep our planet looking beautiful!
