Reuse & Repurpose Club

The Re-use And Re-Purpose On Purpose Club (RARPOP) meets after school to create usable items from previously used materials which would have ended up in a landfill.

We make items such as tissue paper flowers, colorful round rugs from old t-shirts, bird feeders from water bottles, gift boxes and ear bud holders from old medicine bottles and fidget kickers to go around the legs of desk chairs for students to bounce their feet on when they need movement!  We also learned ways to make roses from cardboard egg cartons and gift card holders from file folders.
