Welcome kids at art to The Imagination Factory
Previous Activities A Kid's Columbus Creative Department Lessons/Activities Outlet Store Public Relations Links Awards Badge Matcher Education Department The Trash Matcher

There's no machinery at The Imagination Factory, and smokestacks don't pollute the air. Instead, we teach children and their caregivers creative ways to recycle by making art. The lessons and activities include drawing, painting, sculpture, collage, papier-mache, marbling, and crafts.

  • Use the Trash Matcher to quickly find uses for items most people throw away.
  • Are you a Girl Scout or Brownie? Check out our Badge Matcher to find art activities that satisfy badge requirements.
  • Working on a 4-H, science fair, or social studies project? The Project Matcher can help.
  • Meet Trashasaurus Rex! Our giant dino celebrates his 21st birthday this year, and has inspired thousands of people
    worldwide to create their own recycled sculptures.
