This is an opportunity for children to come and participate in the following Planet Warriors events:
Amazing prizes will also be awarded
Collect the materials you will need. All of these things should be made from waste that would otherwise end up in a landfill. You’ll find many things at home – from everyday packaging, bottle tops, plastic bags, newspaper, magazines, tins, as well as boxes of old stuff, toys, puzzles with missing pieces and a garage full of other possibilities. Just look at things for their shape and form, not for what they were originally made for, and you will be amazed at what emerges from the imagination. If you need a lot of something, then go to the businesses that make them, as most of them will have waste of some sort – whether it’s ends of rolls from fabric, newspaper and magazines, orange bags, salt and mealie bags, sails, old t-shirts, jean pockets, nuts, bolts, wheels from broken prams, one socks, one shoe… The list is endless and most will be happy to give it to you for FREE if it’s for a child’s project.
Then you create something new out of them – either lots of the same things to sell at the market, an outfit to model in the Eco Fashion Show or a model of your Planet Warrior design or invention. You could also play or sing a song in the talent contest.
