Go Green Night Activities

13 years 3 months ago #155896 by Susi
We're combining our art night w/Green this year. Still in the planning phases (will happen around Earth Day) but thinking: decorating reusble grocery bags (hopeuflly donated by our local Safeway), large styrofoam/trash sculptures, making it a zero (or super low) trash event and earth/green skits and songs by the differnt grades. Looking into also adding a plant or seed sale as a fundraising component.

Did you see this slide show of a recycled art program?
It might give you an idea of the types of recycled materials to request.

Also, since you are still in the planning phases could you start a recycled materials drive with in your school now? You could either collect through the classrooms or perhaps have a general bin in your lobby?

Keep us posted on your event!

We are still in the planning phase... I would love to hear what sort of recycled products were donated from companies and restaurants for the craft projects.

We were initially thinking of having those that come BRING a recycled project that they did at home... but I am starting to think that we could have families make their project or "garbage pal" as a family and display on tables in the the hall for a week or so.

Would love to hear more ideas. Thank you!

We ran a Go Green night last march & it was a big hit. Our suggestion would be to not over do it with activities because 1/its hard to get people to volunteer to man them all and 2/its just not necessary. just pick a few from the kit and maybe one of your own. We got recycled materials donated froma nearby co and restaurant and had a recycled crafts activity in our art room - it was awesome and families loved it.

Has your group run a Go Green Night ? What activities did your group run? What activities did kids like or dislike? Any creative ideas you can share?
