It’s that time during the summer when I can take a couple weeks to organize, clean, and create. I get neglected jobs finished, and I love this time just before school starts.
Today I was looking for another document on my computer and ran across this old booklet, Rubbish Re-Creations, I wrote in 1993. I just wanted to share it, not just because it has a few ideas with life left in them, but because I was delighted to see the #maker in me back in those years. I never called it that, of course, but some #maker values continue to guide me.
I want to save the earth, encourage and grow problem-solving, creativity and imagination in children and adults, and save money. Every year, I give students and families a list of things to save for our classroom, and this year I am excited to be leading an Imagination Chapter through the Imagination Foundation.
Here’s to making, creating, reducing and reusing (the two better Rs than recycyling!)
