Nemo Says…. "No More Trash" Just Keep Swimming. Our classroom theme is "Nemo" and found it only appropriate that our CAN be decorated the same. We used a 32 gallon plastic trash can with lid, which was painted blue to match the water. Under water designs were hand painted to add depth and contrast. Each student then added their marker colored, card stock cutout, "Nemo" character, which was double sided taped to the can. The lid shows the cardstock cutout "Nemo", hand painted slogan and the No MOre Trash logo. The CAN will be located at Bobby's Hair & Nail salon in Gallatin, MO.

Don’t Litter, Save A Critter

School:

Number of Participants:

We choose the theme "Don’t Litter, Save A Critter" because we all like animals. At first we wanted to make a deer, but we decided that would be too difficult. The ladybug was made from recycled newspapers wrapped around two broken hula hoop rings. The newspapers were then covered with recycled 3M paper which is donated to our school each year. We used toilet paper rolls painted with donated paint for the legs and antennas. The spots on the ladybug are from the bottoms of 2-liter soda bottles.

The 14 students were guided by teachers Carol Stephens and Melissa West and chose the theme, “Beauti-Fly Our City.” The group created a butterfly trash can from various recycled materials including used water bottles collected by students and used aluminum foil from the school cafeteria. Students created the paper mache head of the butterfly from old newspapers donated by the school library along with donated paint, glue, pipe cleaners and other supplies. A local business donated Styrofoam scraps for the wings, which students decorated with donated tissue paper, paper and paint.
