Every Thursday A Mommy’s Adventures does a really fun blog carnival every Thursday – read your child a story then accompany it with art!

Our homeschool group went to a recycling place for a field trip last Friday. This is a place where people bring materials that other people can use. As a educator we were able to take books, supplies for crafts, etc. for a $1.00! I left with 20 lbs worth of stuff! Accompanied by a tour of their facility the kids made crafts out of recycled materials. Both my boys and most of the boys there made foam airplanes.

We brought our’s home & my 3 year old deocrated his with paint & stickers.
I decided to read him a airplane book to go with the craft. This week we did it backwards – craft 1st then read the book!


  1. What a great field trip and I love that sponge airplane!

  2. That a new way to make an airplane. Does it fly well?

  3. I’m dying to go to our local recycling center.

  4. What a nice place to visit, and it sounds like you helped them recycle and reuse 🙂 That airplane looks great.

  5. How nice to combine shopping, a field trip, and a craft!

  6. I love the plane. What a good idea! The field trip sounds wonderful.
