Creating with Loose Parts

Some beautiful pieces of art can be created using loose parts or "trash"! Things that you might just throw out, could be used to create something new and beautiful! First, look at the examples for some ideas of how others have used loose parts to create art! Next, you will find the objects you want to use and make your creation (see list of possible objects below). Take some photos as you create your portrait and then take a photo of the final portrait. Be sure to share the photos to your "HOW I EXPRESS MYSELF PORTFOLIO" The "HOW I EXPRESS MYSELF PORTFOLIO" was previously shared as an activity on Seesaw Here is a list of things you could possibly use: Plastic Bottle Caps (cleaned) Buttons Lollipop Sticks (cleaned) Popsicle Sticks (cleaned) Funnels Straws Curtain Rings Ribbon Scarves (different fabrics) Yarn String Rope Rubber Bands Cardboard Boxes - variety of sizes Cardboard Scraps Egg cartons Cereal Boxes Paper Scraps Toilet Roll Tubes Kitchen Roll Tubes Clothes Pegs Dried Chickpeas (or other dried beans that are similar size, not too small) Small rocks Leaves Sticks Flower petals Pieces of wood (sanded) Shells Seeds Parents - provide your child with a small quantity of some of these items.
