We're using resources faster than we're replacing them. That's why Nature Watch created Eco-Solutions, one of the best ways we've seen to teach children how recycling can be fun, useful and helpful to the environment. Imagine the experience of making paper out of leaves, flowers, newspaper and other "throw-aways" without a blender. Mix that with fun games and you're delivering ecology in a way that sticks in students' minds. This project takes approximately 20-30 minutes to make the paper, and the paper can take a few hours to dry (it may take up to one day to dry if the weather outside is cool or humid, or if the paper is especially thick).

Ages 4 and up.

Unit Goals and Concepts:

  • Increase awareness of environmental problems.
  • Allow individuals to discuss and express their concerns and viewpoints.
  • Suggest some of the solutions that each individual can implement.
  • Become part of the solution by making recycled paper.

Materials Included: 

  • 5 paper screens, 2 trays, and 4 sponges that can be used time and again to make recycled paper out of scraps-a great take-home project!
  • Books and resource materials that help enlighten instructors and inspire kids.
  • Our exclusive instructor's activity guide that makes planning the project easy and delivers loads of fun ideas for activities, games and relevant projects.
  • You supply just the recyclables.

For larger groups, simply add extra paper screens on to your order (see below).
