KID-FRIENDLY! Tire Sandboxes (or Planters!)

  • the Green Project 2831 Marais St. New Orleans United States (map)

Skill Level: Beginner
Ages: 5+
Location: MakerSpace (located upstairs; no a/c in the main room, but adjacent classroom available to cool down)

Flat tire? Nothing a little recycled paint can’t fix! Make a termite proof sandbox using reclaimed tires and paint. Easy peasy lemon squeezy! Tires and paint provided. You bring your artistic vision and a hankering for outdoor fun.

Feeling too old for sandboxes? Turn your tire in to a tiny raised bed planter and use it to plant native flowers for pollinators!

Hey parents! This workshop runs in tandem with our Mosaic Game Board workshop, which makes the perfect cover for your sandbox to keep critters out!

This workshop is FREE and open to kids ages 5+, but will be tailored to ages 5-10. Please wear clothes that can get paint on them! All kids must have a parental supervisor with them at all times, or in attendance at the Mosaic Game Board workshop.


This workshop is free, but it helps us to know who is coming!
