Date: December 19, 2015 Author: admin Categories: Green Schools, Scroller

In this project we looked at toys made by children in St. Emmanuel’s school in Kenya. The children there often use reused materials to make toys.

Making a Kite

We then took on the challenge of making our own toys from reused materials.  Each child who made a toy also donated €1 to St. Emmanuel’s schools to help with the construction of a new classroom. 

We were amazed with the creative toys that the children made. Great use was made of old materials. This helped our environment and saved money compared with buying a new toy.

Four toys were chosen as winning entries. Below you can see the winning toys and the names of the creative designers.
