“The Beautiful Stuff Project is a creative reuse center offering free and low cost materials to public schools, childcare centers, and community agencies…and the children and families they serve. [Its] unique inventory is collected from the excess and scrap of local manufacturers, stores, and artists. Instead of ending up in the trash, [they] inspire teachers, childcare workers, clinicians, parents, and kids to use materials for educational, creative, and therapeutic purposes — and just plain fun!”
Join Marina Seevak, educator, trainer, and founding director of The Beautiful Stuff Project at their Somerville storefront to learn about how to utilize recycled treasures to create fun and educational experiences. Discover their popular “treasure box” curriculum she developed to bring quality educational play experiences to early childhood classrooms. Get inspired by these easy-to-use, low cost treasure boxes full of small collectible and reusable items and gather materials to make a set for your classroom. Bibliography of accompanying children’s books available to all participants.
All participants will receive one bag of recycled goods!
