For one of my classes, we are required to find articles on Oceanography, compile them into a scrapbook, and write a paper about them (5th grade style). The first thing I thought of when I heard the assignment was, “Sweet! That should be easy, a couple clicks on the internet.” The very next thing my professor said was, “…and they need to be from multiple sources, not just the internet!”. Well great, there goes my easy plan. With that, I called up the Register Guard here in Eugene, Oregon and signed myself up for newspaper delivery.
Getting the newspaper has actually been really fun! It has been something to look forward to in the morning along with my delicious coffee, check out the local dramatic news, and I get to catch up on some of my old favorite comics (Zits and Baby Blues!). The downside I’ve noticed is that I have a TON of newspaper laying around! Recycling was an obvious option for me, but I also wondered if within the many newspaper pages, lay a craft waiting to be made with Taylor or fun art projects to start on. I did a little googling and found some great crafts to share:
Do you up-cycle your newspaper in fun ways?
