Thurrock Island | Week 6

Activity 6 – Reduce. Reuse. Recycle

Hello and welcome to Week 6

This week we are challenging you to transform items from around your home into something new. Before you throw out that cereal box or plastic bottle of washing up liquid, stop and think, could this be a building or a submarine. Could a kitchen roll tube be a tower? And what could a tissue box become?

Reduce. Reuse. Recycle.

Our challenge for you is to take something destined for the rubbish bin or recycling and transform it into something new.

We are looking for a range of buildings and vehicles, but you can create anything you like! Let’s get crafting!

To be in with a chance of having your creations featured in the Thurrock Island Gallery at Thurrock Festival Digital in September 2020, please photograph your artwork and either upload a JPEG or PNG image of your creation to the Thurrock Island Facebook group or email them to

We are looking forward to seeing what you create.

Please share your creations on social media using #ThurrockIsland
