Using Goldilocks in Education, Especially Recycling

This article described some unusual usage of Goldilocks in education. Thought I would share. From Read all about it: How to make a chair from newspaper:

PUPPETRY, porridge flicking and chair-making are keeping hundreds of crafty youngsters entertained throughout their half-term holidays.

Children's charity ST-ART, based in Barton-Upon-Humber, has been hosting a variety of exciting and innovative workshops across North Lincolnshire this week.

All activities were based on the popular traditional fairytale Goldilocks and the Three Bears.

Children transformed recycled newspaper into hand-made stools with artist Michael Scrimshaw.

Callum Oldridge, 11, said: "The workshop was lots of fun.

"I cannot believe that you can make a stool that you can actually sit on simply out of newspaper.

"We used a machine to squash the paper into rolls so it was really hard and then we used cable ties to fix it all together.

"I am surprised how strong the stool is and I will take it home and use it in my bedroom."
