A monster-themed activity book about recycling trash into toys and art projects by a brand designer.
Welcome to Scrap City, home of an inventive tribe of creatures called ScrapKins. Using materials that people throw away (empty soda bottles, cans, milk cartons, and cereal boxes) these creatures make new things that are useful and fun--they are the ultimate recyclers.

With character profiles of the ScrapKins and instructions to make all kinds of puppets, instruments, and toys out of everyday items, this activity book (also featuring mazes, word scrambles, and comics) fosters creativity and encourages eco-friendliness.
