We both love trash.
Granted, we don't love it for the same reasons. Oscar loves trash because, well, he's a grouch.
We love trash because it gives us a chance to teach kids about recycling and reusing.
Rice and Bollas will also show children some of the fun ways they can reuse their trash. For example, this week, kids took recycled paper slurry and turned it into sparkly, new construction paper.
Beth and Bonnie are going to have Trashy Tuesday crafts every other Tuesday this summer over at the Read House. They will show kids how to make a wallet, beads and other fun crafts from recyclables.
All of the Trashy Tuesday programs are free and open to kids of all ages.
However, we ask that parents register their children beforehand. They can do so by calling Mentor Public Library at (440) 255-8811 ext. 221 or on the library’s website.
