Help us make this a plastic-fee event! Bring reusable water bottles and bags.


Lei making: Make a lei for someone special (or yourself!) using recycled materials.

Buoy decor: Make art from buoys collected from O‘ahu beaches by Sustainable Coastlines. Kids will get a chance to decorate the outside of buoy and attach strings to hang.

Sustainable art: Kids will use pieces of recycled plastic to make wind chimes and jewelry.

• Drawing Contest: Kids ages 1 to 17 are encouraged to enter! The museum gives contestants a theme and drawing supplies. The winner receives a Supporting Membership to the Honolulu Museum of Art ($100 value), and his or her artwork is used to create the following month’s event brochure and is posted on the museum's website.
