Simple Green Ideas

What can kids do on a rainy day? Something that doesn’t involve X-Box or Playstation or TV!

One of the banes of modern shopping is the ubiquitous polystyrene try.

Food comes like this...

What to do?

I used to wash them and most would finish up in the ‘junk box’ along with all sorts of other knick-knacks.

On a rainy day I’d get out the junk box, sellotape, glue, paints, etc set it on the veranda and tell the kids to get to it and use their imaginations.

They’d come up with all sorts of weird and wonderful things.

Simple Green Ideas

We’ve all got bits and pieces around the house, in the kitchen, backyard or shed. Bits and pieces that seemingly make no sense, or seem irrelavent to recycling or repurposing.

But with a bit of imagination, they can become something.

See what you have around the house or stored in the attic that makes you stretch your imagination…

Old PC & Imagination

Do you have an old PC lying around? Most of us have.  The world is full of dead and dying PCs.

They can be recycled…

But then, they can be recycled…

using a little imagination.

A hamster cage, or…

A mailbox, or…

Something arty, or…

A grind wheel, or…

A clock, or…

Another clock, or…

Earrings, or…

A keychain, or…

A box for, well, things, or if all else fails…

A grill!

You see, just a little imagination…

Recycle your old PC
