open-ended sculptures with junk

Pin It
junk.

i've got no other word to call the random stuff i save in our craft cabinet.
egg cartons
cardboard corners from picture frames
toilet paper rolls
scraps of foam sheets
the list goes on and on

i got a bunch of it out one day along with glue, pipe cleaners, scissors, the stapler, and my low heat glue gun.  i put them on our preschool table and began fiDDLinG with them to see if Bear would become interested.  soon he came over and began building a sculpture like Bob the Builder would (according to him). 



***if you let your child use a stapler or glue gun, make sure they are properly supervised***

the final product:

Love this! I am an unashamed cardboard-and-jar hoarder, but now I may need to expand my collection... :)

This was always my favorite project to do when I was teaching Middle School Art. Even the 8th graders thought this was so fun. Thanks for linking to Wednesday Pinterest Favorites :)
