Want a fun activity to do with your child that uses recycled materials, a little imagination and some writing skill practice? Have your child build his very own recycled creature! He’ll have a ball building a creature from recyclable plastic bottles, metal cans, newspaper and cardboard, then writing up an exclusive interview when he’s finished.
This project will not only help your child learn how to plan, create and problem solve, but it will give him some practice with dialogue writing too. And the best part is that you don’t even have to go to the store to buy any materials!
