Turning Trash Into… Toys!?


You know when your at school doing a boring project, well this is nothing like a boring project!! This is a great, awesome, creative project. This project is a making a toy with your tribes out of recycled goods!

Well, we have these sheets of paper that have all these different stages. These are the stages: Mystery Box ( Pick a box with things in it and see your materials), Sketching ideas ( Draw at least three possible ideas on paper), Trading time ( Swoop somethingย with someone), Construction time( Start construction), Diary of Changes ( Right down the changes since starting), Finishing off ( Finish and adniorย your work), Think of the differences (What you would do differently).


In each box there is different things. Here’s some exanples: Cardboard tubes, Straws, Balloons, Cups and heaps more. There are things called ‘Lifelines’. Lifelines are these things that you can use to get a piece of enquetnment. You only get two Lifelines so use it carefuly. But, there are some things that don’t need lifelines to get like: String, Glue, Sticky Tape, Cardboard and paper.ย 

Each toy has to have at least one moving part. It could a wheel,ย  balloons, curtains, windows, anything, anything in the whole world. There is only one toy per tribe, so don’t make one each to take home.

    Dear Josie,
    Turning trash into toys is such a great idea. We are making a pond with fish in it.It is a great idea because you move the string and the fish will move.
    As soon as we opened the box we had we said that we dident really have what we neaded but when we had trading day that helped us so much because a lot of people whated what we had and they had what we needed so the trading day went well.
    How did your trading day go and what did you trade.

      I thourght trading time was the best, it was so cool seeing what everyone wanted. We traded something that I forgot for two paper circles!
      Our tribe is making a limo from a cardboard tube and boxes. A fish tank was a cool idea, I would defently love to play with that! ๐Ÿ˜€
      Our tribe is called the Super Lolliepops!
