Kitchen Collection Art Project

It's hard to believe that such a beautiful picture started out as odds and ends headed for the garbage can. This kitchen collection art project makes use of items that are heading for the trash.

What You'll Need:

  • Plastic cup
  • Markers
  • Bottle caps
  • String
  • Rubber bands
  • Craft glue
  • Construction paper or cardboard

Step One: Place a plastic cup in the kitchen to collect all kinds of throwaway items. Label your cup "Kitchen Collection" so that everyone knows to put the items in the cup.

Step Two: Once the cup is full, take a look at what you have collected. Arrange and glue the objects into an interesting collage on a piece of construction paper or cardboard.

Step Three: You'll have so much fun collecting the items that you may want to put a cup in the laundry room and your bedroom for other kinds of objects.
