> DESCRIPTION

The concept of Trash for Teaching began in 2004 when Steve and Kathy Stanton started taking their own manufacturing byproducts and overruns to their son’s preschool to be used in class projects.  Things from their specialty packaging factory like die-cut cardboard hearts, ribbons, and long cardboard tubes.  The children liked the materials and found many ways to use them.  In fact they came up with many more ways to play with the items than most adults could ever imagine.  It was a wonderful lesson for the Stantons in how naturally resourceful and imaginative young children are.  As the school was Reggio Emilia-based the open-ended materials fit perfectly in many of the daily activities.
