This is a short post today about my five-year garbage can project. Have you ever taken so long to complete a simple project? I’d love to hear from you!
In the summer of 2009, I was at the Brooklyn Bridge Park in NY and the garbage bins caught my eye. They were works of art – they were painted with beautiful scenes of nature with bold, vibrant colors. The image stayed in my mind and I promised that I would try my creativity with the garbage cans in my classroom. I’m finally honoring my commitment, five years later.
This summer, I tried to be creative with two garbage bins, but my creativity yielded just a coat of paint and some stickers. One would think that a five-year project would have been something to behold! Alas, nothing eye-catching. I happy to say that I did honor my commitment : )
Here is a “before” photo of one of the cans.
