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 700 bags!

About our project: Our students, as young as four years old, decorated 700 bags with colorful designs and "go green" messages in English and in Spanish. We found that even our least experienced illustrators had fun gluing flower cut-outs on their bags. Shoppers at Kings Soopers grocery store were thrilled to receive them on Earth Day!

We decorated 350 bags!

About our project: Students at Smith Renaissance School of the Arts, an urban public school in Denver, Colo., combined their love of the arts with their love of the environment by participating in the grocery project for the first time. All 350 students in grades K-5 decorated the bags during art classes and then members of the student council delivered the bags to a neighborhood King Soopers grocery store. The designs were colorful and the environmental messages were scrawled in English and in Spanish. As a result of their participation in the grocery project, students have been inspired to do other things to help with the effort to keep our earth green, such as their newly formed "clean up club" which cleans up garbage in the neighborhood, weekly. Smith elementary can't wait to participate again next year!
