Fusion Arts & Service Camp - Recycled Paper Bracelets

After touring Ten Thousand Villages, and hearing stories about the wonderful recycled products made by women & children around the world, the Fusion Camp Volunteers set off to make our own recycled jewelry.  These are recycled paper bracelets.  You cut strips from old magazines, cover one side with modge podge, and roll them up around a coffee stirring stick.  The girls were proud of their creations, and each left with plans to give their bracelet to someone as a gesture of encouragement.

We used these activities to talk about cultural competence, as well as equality and social justice - 2 of the 40 Developmental Assets.
