Craft booklet with recycled material.

  1. 1. Comenius Project 2012-2014 Plan to Preserve this Pretty Planet Craft booklet: a ColleCtion of Crafts from around europe
  2. 2. All participating countries, Finland, France, Ireland, Italy, Malta, Romania and UK took part in this collection of crafts found in this craft book. The best two crafts were selected by each educational institution. The purpose of compiling a Craft Booklet was to show that children from various countries can share their ideas of how they can produce something made out of used and recycled material. Children benefitted from learning to produce various artefacts but they also became more aware of how best they can protect their environment. Children were asked to either work in groups or individually on anything they liked. They were advised to make use of stuff that is usually thrown away. Instead of throwing things away and as a consequence pollute the environment, children managed to producing a special craft. The final products varied from just decorative ones to others being more useful and practical for our everyday life. The Craft booklet is divided into sections. In each section one can see from which country and school the craft originated. In each section you can also find the aim of producing the particular object and all the materials needed to get to the final product. The whole craft booklet is very visual and gives step-by-step guidelines as to how one can produce the craft. We do hope that you enjoy doing all the crafts shown on this handbook. This booklet has been coordinated by St Joseph Junior School Sliema MALTA
