    Please do NOT throw away your mascara wands. Instead, clean JUST THE WAND with dawn soap, place them in a ziploc bag and mail them to a Wildlife Refuge accepting donations. These little wands are able to be upcycled to clean away oil, larvae, fly eggs, mites, infections, mud and other contaminants from wildlife. Works great for medical care and wound treatment

    Pick your refuge to mail to:

    Appalachian Wild
    P.O. Box 1211
    Skyland NC 28776


    Wildlife Wands
    P.O. Box 1586

    We used to make artwork with small broken crayons. We put them between wax paper and melted them with an iron (with a towel over the wax paper) and then framed it and hung it on the wall.

    I took this list over to my former school so teachers can challenge their students to implement these ideas and come up with additional great uses

    We homeschool and hardly waste a thing. I've seen tons thrown away at public schools and even took some stuff home that would have been thrown away. Now we use that stuff for homeschool. I teach "waste not, want not."

    As long as they aren't too dirty, pencil cases make perfect sized makeup brush holders also , Ladies!
