ICYMI: CHB Eco Fair and Repair Cafe

30 Second Read creative reuse ICYMI Montclair NJ

Last Saturday I had a blast at the Charles H Bullock Elementary School Eco Fair and Repair Cafe promoting the Montclair Creative Reuse Project and making books from repurposed papers with the kids. It's a fun demo that I've done before. I brought materials to make mini books including a variety of papers, book cover materials like file folders in different colors, and supplies to decorate them like stickers, colored pencils, markers, and the most popular item, mini paper punches. All these materials came from my Creative Reuse Project stash! 
The weather was great, the wind only sent us running after papers a couple times. This event was organized by the school, the environment science magnet, and there were so many fun displays and giveaways like plants and books. 
I was set up next to a bike powered smoothie stand which was fascinating and popular with a long line most of the day!
I've been invited to this school event several times but always had a conflict. I'm happy that I was able to attend this year and make books with the kids and spread the word about the MCRP to the parents!
