This activity is a great, quick filler Christmas art lesson that can be used to discuss and implement Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. The items used for this project are typically cast off items that can be given new life as a beautiful work of art. You may want to read a story about a Christmas Tree. One suggestion is The Legend of a Christmas Tree by Rick Osborne. A suggestion for a book about recycling is Stuff! by Steven Kroll
