I created a tinfoil dog out of a chocolate wrapper to the delight of some children. This is an elegant and creative way to recycle as well a simple and fun art. Comments appreciated

Chocolate tin foil wrappers

Recently, on the ward, a patient's family left a gift of chocolates as a mark of gratitude to the physicians of the ward. I couldn't resist the urge, and after having eaten a chocolate, placed the aluminum "tinfoil" in my pocket with the intention of recycling perfectly good tinfoil. Later, as I have always had a good hand at sculpting in clay, I proceeded to see what I could do with the tin foil wrapping, much to the delight of two children who happened to be present.

My love of the "dog"

Ever since I discovered the joy of sculpting with clay, I have enjoyed shaping a dog - usually crouching. In many boring lessions, I have made and remade this form with a hand full of "Silly Putty" or some such equivalent. As this was an extremely familiar form for me it was only natural to try my hand at making a similar form out of the aluminum wrapping. This turned out to be very easy to do and I am happy to share with you the results of my handywork. My satisfaction was doubled knowning that I am in my small way helping the environment by recycling and was trippled by the smiles of enjoyment and pleasure on the faces of the children present.

I would appreciate comments

I would love to continue posting photos of my creations but I really would like to get some feed back on what people think of my artwork. So, if you would like to see some more as well as perhaps some tips for how to go about making your own, by all means, please leave some comments!

That dog has been added to my stock of ideas for if I ever teach any childcare again. People always need ideas that are easy to do and this would work well in preschool, I think.

Try it yourself first - preschooler tend to tear the tinfoil - I have better techniques for preschoolers...

LUSH, the high-street beauty firm that prides itself on using natural and ethical ingredients, is willing to dull some of its shine over concerns about the use of child labor in <a href="http://www.coachfactoryoutlet-handbags.com/" title="www.coachfactory.com/store">coach factory outlet</a>, where 60 percent of the <a href="http://www.michaelkorsoutletmkstore.com/" title="michael kors outlet">michael kors outlet online</a> is mined, according to the <a href="http://www.michaelkorsoutletonlinemk.com/" title="michael kors outlet online">michael kors outlet online</a>.

We know the week leading up to the big day will be a total whirlwind of activity and last minute touches. The <a href="http://www.fitflopflip-flop.com/" title="flip flops">fitflop</a>, with its heavy, chevron treads, are incredible in slick fitflop (and, as we-ve found out in Eugene this winter, snow). So you may play a good hand and win just 20% of the time. This got me thinking: how often should we be -folding- in life?
