Hey, friends! We need your help!
Remember when I posted the other day about Stray Rescue and we’re working with them for our service-learning project? Well the project is just about to be in full-swing. Why not yet? Because like I said, we need your help!
We have decided to make and then sell dog toys and treats, because when Connie came from Stray Rescue, she mentioned several times that the thing they need the most is MONEY! We threw around several ideas about how to help, and decided to merge our overall class craftiness with their need for money and are going to sell our handiwork to our Robinson friends. So we’ll need your help with that (once Sale Day comes up on April 28), but right now we need your help to gather the materials we’ll need to make our toys.
So…if you know me, or a friend in our class, and have any of these items laying around your house and are willing to let us use them, please get to us ASAP. We’re going to start creating on Tuesday or Wednesday–hey, I know it’s late notice, so if you can’t work that fast I get it, but we just decided the other day that this was our plan. Ok, moving on…
Here’s what we need:
- tennis balls
- old jeans
- fleece blankets (or other fleece material that you don’t mind us cutting up)
- empty water bottles (16 oz. or so)–no need for lids
- old socks (adult sizes would work best)
- dry milk
- peanut butter
- cookie cutters (dogs, paws, bones, etc)
We’re getting excited about all of this creativity that is about to spring forth in our room, and even more excited about how that will benefit our canine and human friends alike when we can give Stray Rescue our donation! There are over 400 kiddos in our school, and there is a large population of dog owners (we collected data to find out how many there really were!), so we’ll need to make lots of toys. The more you can donate the better!
If you can help and you are a parent or friend of a kiddo in our class, just send your goodies in with them to school. If you are a friend of mine, feel free to contact me and I will figure out a way to get them from you! Add a comment on here or send me an email, Facebook message or Twitter DM. THANKS IN ADVANCE FOR YOUR HELP!
Marin will be able to bring in old socks, honey, oatmeal, a few water bottles, and old jeans!
YAY! Thanks so much for all those goodies. Can’t wait to show what they become after we add our creativity! 🙂
We can donate jeans and oatmeal, what a wonderful
service project for the kids to do. 🙂
Thanks so much! The best part is that it was totally their idea! Can’t wait to post pics of all the things we end up making. Hoping the creativity starts tomorrow!
