A field trip to The Scrap Box is a great way to introduce the concept of using resources wisely. Girls explore the 3Rs — reduce, reuse, and recycle — using our unique recycled materials.
The workshops are designed to fullfil part of a badge requirement. The activities are as open-ended as possible to allow all children the opportunity to express their own creativity.
Each workshop consists of 3 parts:
- First, the Scrap Box presenter talks about our scrap materials, showing examples of what the product was that produced the scrap.
- Second, the girls get some hands-on experience making their project, based on the project chosen for that day. Girls are fully engaged in discovery, problem solving, and creativity; each girl’s masterpiece will be unique.
- Third, the girls go shopping in the large bulk room, filling a bag to take home.
Each workshop lasts one and one-half hours. The cost is $6.00 per girl, with a minimum charge per workshop of $75.00. Small troops often invite siblings along. There is no charge for adults unless they want to participate in making the project and/or shopping.
Suggested Project Choices:
