Look at all the art supplies Wendy picked up at Extra’s. They are an Arts & Crafts Store in Peabody, Massachusetts (see info at bottom of this blog) or check out their web site: https://www.facebook.com/ExtrasforCreativeReuse/
Extra organizes and offers to the public these kinds of supplies for adults and kids to use creatively. Wendy is a member and she periodically picks interesting things up for the kids to use. Below are some of the things she brought back this week.
Shelby was making a crate for her stuffed dogs. The row of stuff on the back wall is food and drinks. Aside from the ‘food and drinks’ and some foam core scraps for the roof, all was from Extras.
Robbie was making a barn out of cork tiles. Except for the legos (that are shelves on the walls) and some foam core scraps for part of the roof, all was from Extras.
Look below at Gabby’s melted crayon heart picture. She looks so proud!
From their website…..
Extras for Creative Reuse is a membership based community center where teachers, artist, families, college students, and community and cultural workers can find free materials and support for their creative projects, while helping the environment at the same time. Our waste recovery program, which saves materials from landfills (items like manufacturing left overs and by-products, overstocks, commercial swag, product samples, and reusable art, office, and school supplies), in turn helps to stock the shelves in our Imaginiarium, or free store. Our members are allowed to take materials from the center a certain number of times per year, depending on membership levels.
Thanks always for reading our blog!
