Ideas for Using Scrap


                Learning with Scrap

Learning with Scrap

This book was compiled in a response to a growing need among preschool and preprimary teachers for ideas and patterns for making inexpensive educational toys for young children.

Many of these ideas can be used by parents, home visitors, childminders and others who care for young children. The book contains 60 carefully selected ideas for making preschool equipment for each activity area - art, make-believe, discovery, blocks and outdoor play.

The instructions are illustrated with step-by-step drawings. Where needed, patterns to size are provided in a separate envelope. No expensive tools are needed. The book also describes how the toy or game should be used and what children learn by playing with it.

                Using Waste to Educate

Using Waste to Educate

South Africa, like many other countries, is swamped with waste material. Finding a use for waste helps to keep our environment tidy. This book shows how waste, combined with natural things like leaves, twigs, pebbles and so on, can be of enormous educational value, especially in preschools.

Waste can be used by both teachers and parents in urban and rural communities. "Using Waste to Educate" was put together in response to requests from rural communities where there is often a lack of funds for the purchasing of much needed educational equipment.
