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!
