Junk or trea­sure fun

Kids Go Gardening - - Autumn -

Mak­ing some­thing use­ful from some­thing old saves money. Plus – that’s one less thing to go in the rub­bish. It’s called ‘up­cy­cling’ and its good for our planet. It’s amaz­ing what you can make out of junk! Kacy made her lovely hang­ing bas­ket out of an old pot she found at the op shop. You could also make it out of an old strainer or sieve. The im­por­tant thing is that it has holes in it for the wa­ter to drain. Kacy’s pot was once a vege steamer so it al­ready had holes in the bot­tom. Oth­er­wise, get an adult to help you drill some holes. Kacy’s dad helped her to take the han­dle off her pot and drilled three holes to at­tach the wires.
