Recycle Trash Into A City, Kids Art Project Earth Day, Spramani Elaun

earth day art projects for schoolsBy Spramani Elaun

1. City of Trash – construct a city out of your own daily waste and paint.

City of Trash

City of Trash is a collaborative recycled cardboard art project I created for one of the largest Annual Earth Day Events held at Balboa Park in San Diego, California. City of Trash was my way of showing children how one household can produce an abundance of non-biodegradable waste weekly, and an opportunity to educate them about our landfill issues. The art project structure started with me challenging a group of children to save one week’s worth of trash from shopping trips to the grocery store with their families. I asked them to save everything that would normally go into the trash or recycle bin – minus perishable items. I took the challenge myself and saved all of my shopping containers for one week, “See picture below”.

After collecting a week’s worth of garbage, I set out to start constructing City of Trash. I guided the kids with simple ideas of building features usually found around city landscapes. I found an extra-large cardboard box and recycled it into our flat canvas to build onto. I started the basic constructing of tall buildings and the kids jumped right in with some really cool and creative ideas of their own. Once the city was constructed, the second phase of painting than started.” The second phase was a great opportunity for me to teach a painting lesson to the kids. We used earth-friendly, safe and non-toxic acrylic paints on this project.

The City of Trash upcycled structure below was on display and open to the community to view at the EarthWorks Earth Day Festival in San Diego. Our City of Trash was captured on camera by several local network T.V. channels. I also had the opportunity to host the same type of project with local homeschooling organizations. The earth-friendly message behind this art project is to remind consumers of their buying habits and the landfill issues we face today.

The earth-friendly message behind this art project is to remind consumers of their buying habits and the landfill issues we face today.

Trash we collected was packaging scraps commonly recycled or discarded. This low-cost project can be re-created for kids to make as an Earth Day project. Listed below are simple suggestions for making this project at home, in classrooms or with organized groups such as boy or girl scouts. Boy or girl scouts can earn a badge or patch for learning about what “earth friendly” means.

How you can create this project:

• Collect trash, cardboard, boxes, and anything that cannot biodegrade quickly or that commonly goes into the recycle bin.

• Good scissors

• Glue gun – low temperature glue gun (parents should help with glue gun

• Non-toxic paints

• Paint brushes

• Duct tape or clear strong tape
