3rd Grade Recycled Magazine Bowls

This is the second time I have done this project.  It is one that I have seen on other blogs around the internet and I really like it.  I get it started by cutting a bunch of 3/4" strips of chip board.  The kids wrap single pages of recycled magazine pages very tightly around the chip board.  I tried 1/2" strips last year, but it ended up being a little too difficult for some students.  After many strips are rolled, the pages are then connected end to end to make a large disk.  At the end of the project, we pushed out the bottom of the disk to make a bowl and painted over it with Mod Podge.  This is a great way to talk about recycling in the art room and use up some old donated magazines!
