CHILDREN showed off their crafting skills as they turned cans into animals as part of National Recycle Week.
Pupils from Locks Heath Infant School in Warsash Road, Locks Heath, took part in the Recycle for Hampshire competition, which challenged school children to make something animal-related out of a can.
Thousands of animals, nicknamed ‘canimals’, were made at schools across the county and each child who took part received a certificate and a pencil made out of recycled newspaper. A winner at each school was given a gift voucher.
Lesley Price, from Recycle for Hampshire, and chairman of Project Integra, Leslie Keeble, visited Locks Heath Infants to see the entries and encouraged the children to think about recycling metals, such as cans, as well as recycling old materials to make their animals from.
