There's no machinery at The Imagination Factory, and smokestacks don't pollute the air. But the folks behind it do teach children creative ways to reuse and recycle materials. Just some of the awesome activities featured with trash include drawing, painting, sculpture, collage, papier-mâché, marbling, crafts, and a special section for holiday art and crafts.
Not sure what to make of your particular pile of trash? Well, a Trash Matcher helps visitors find potential creations for the solid waste they have available, and a feature called the Badge Matcher allows Brownies, Girl Scouts and their leaders to quickly locate art activities that help satisfy badge requirements. Very cool stuff. And recently they’ve added the Project Matcher, which is designed to match many of the site's activities with 4-H projects and those carried out for school social studies and science fairs.
