Many of us are busy setting up our classrooms this week! This includes opening up new boxes of supplies! Magic markers are a staple in our art rooms so throughout the year we use TONS of markers! This also means they "run out"of ink quickly so remember to designate a few places where students can recycle old markers. There are many great ideas out there for making good use of "dried out" markers. You can make liquid watercolors from your old markers and Sharpies can be recycled using a program at TerraCycle. Check out this site for more ideas about how to recycle your markers. Recycling teaches kids to take care of the Earth and less trash means a happier planet!
