Project Instructions

  1. Paint the tissue box green, and let dry.

    Using a ruler and pencil, measure and trace a blue piece of cardstock paper to fit the sides, top and bottom of the painted tissue box. Cut the traced cardstock paper and glue or apply Mod Podge® onto the box.
  2. Cut letters to spell "reduce," "recycle" and "reuse" from magazines and glue or apply Mod Podge to these letters next to the opening of the tissue box.
  3. Use crayons to draw pictures on the top center of the tissue box.
  4. Add tree and cloud stickers to the sides and top of the tissue box, as desired.

Background

Celebrate Earth Day this April with a recycled craft project that will help students remember—and apply—the fact that recycling is critical if we want a greener, healthier planet. What a great way to recycle not only a tissue box but all those plastic bags that fill our landfills!
