We decorated 25 bags!

About our project: Instead of the grocery bags, my class created bookmarks. With a delay in motor skills it was simpler for my kids to color in all the white in a smaller space of a bookmark. I find some free templates online I simply print out on cardstock then cut the bookmarks out. After the coloring was completed I laminated them and we passed them out at our school library.

We decorated 500 bags!

About our project: Each class in our school read One Plastic Bag written by Miranda Paul. After we read the story, we discussed ways we can solve this real world problem. Next, each student decorated their brown paper bag that was donated by Publix. Students were allowed to pick one of the Earth Day messages to put on their bag. I collected all of the decorated bags and delivered them to Publix in Fairhope, AL to be distributed this week.
