Maker At Home: Animal Art with Recycled Materials

Making art with recycled materials has been very big in contemporary art. This weekend, show us how you and your kids can create something beautiful with only recycled materials then snap a pic of what you made and show us by using the tag #BostonMakes2016


  • Find old clean plastic bags, bottles, or cardboard boxes to use as materials
  • Without using glue, try to cut, tie, weave, and build your favorite animal
  • Give it a creative name, take a pic and post using the hashtag #BostonMakes2016 so that we can see your maker skills


  • Recycled materials (i.e. plastic bags, bottle, or cardboard boxes or toilet paper rolls)
  • Scissors
  • Paint, markers, crayons (optional to decorate animals after building)
