Find new ways to make art from old things.

Option 1: Make a Collage

Using old magazines or postcards, create a collage. You may want to make a collage of flowers or create a picture of a new Flower Friend.

Option 2: Egg Carton or Tissue Roll Art

If you have cardboard egg cartons at home, you can turn them into art. Some great ideas are a bouquet of flowers or fish and turtles. You can also use toilet paper rolls to make fun art projects. Have an adult helper look on Pinterest for endless ideas. Egg Carton Craft Ideas

Option 3: Pencil Holders

Find a used can, yogurt container, or plastic cup. Have an adult helper make sure it is washed and dried. Then cover the container with paper that has been used on one side, leaving the white side out. Color the holder with flowers, bees, plants, and trees. This holder is made from something that would have gone into the trash. Once you’re done decorating your holder, you can use it to put your crayons, markers, and pencils in. This is a good way to use resources wisely!

Practice being resourceful at home. For example, you can help your family make a recipe using leftovers so the food won’t go to waste. Maybe you can practice saving water while you are brushing your teeth by turning off the water until you are ready to rinse. You can practice saving energy by turning the lights or TV off when you are not using them.

What other ideas can you think of?

Now that you have met Clover, print and color her picture! (optional)

You’ve done it! Now you can recite more of the Girl Scout Law! I will do my best to be honest and fair, friendly and helpful, considerate and caring, courageous and strong, and responsible for what I say and do, and to respect myself and others, respect authority, use resources wisely… Great job!
