When I think of waste, or at least when I think of things where I wouldn't at the top of my head wonder here is something I can really use for some awesome practical purpose! I have to admit that pencil shavings could definitely come to mind. They pile up in the sharpener just waiting for one of my kids to knock the sharpener over, spilling the shavings all over the carpet. They seem at first glance to just be calling for a dump into the garbage can.
Perhaps we shouldn't be so quick to judge these simple pencil shavings as mere refuse when, in fact, they can be wondrously transformed and recycled (up-cycled even) into some wonderful pencil shavings crafts for kids. With a careful hand and a little imagination these little bits of wood can masquerade as butterfly wings, flower petals and even fish scales.
