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 20 bags!

About our project: We bought 20 cloth grocery bags. The girls decorated the bags with Earth Day stencils and silk screened mottos & symbols. They made a poster for display at the store. The morning of Earth Day, 2010, the bags & display were delivered. We asked the manager if the bags could be donated to those who might not otherwise buy a re-usable cloth bag, e.g., senior citizens, etc.. We spoke to the manager afterwards, and he said our project was a success, and that everyone who got a bag was delighted with the artwork the girls had done.

We decorated 300 bags!

About our project: 12 classrooms at our school volunteered to participate this year. Albertson's grocery store donated the bags. When we turned them in, they hung them up on the walls of the store before handing them out to customers. It was great to see our work displayed, and to know that the bags would be distributed around the community.
