- The creativeness and craftiness of the show
- Learning how to use ordinary things to make new things (turning old to new)
“The show encouraged discussion surrounding animals that swallow litter”
“The girls thoroughly enjoyed the hand-made set and couldn’t believe the flower was made from a plastic bottle”.
“All of the girls loved seeing what they could specifically recycle, so much so some of them went home to watch the videos on YouTube.”
“You were such a blessing and the learners thoroughly enjoyed themselves!”
