Please help us create a magical experience for the children in the Early Learning Center, by helping us fill the Quad with reflective materials/sculptures for the children to find with their flashlights!

2 Opportunities for Service Hours

  1. Create hanging sculptures that would reflect light from a flashlight 

    • Sculptures need to be dropped off at the ELC no later than December 5

    • If you’d like to create sculptures with your found materials, you can join us on November 30 from 6:30pm-8:30pm to create sculptures with your found materials (glue guns, wire, etc will be provided).

Parameters for Reflective Hanging Sculptures

In keeping with Adelphi University’s Green Initiatives, we are looking for students to use found and repurposed materials. 

  • The sculptures should be able to catch and reflect back the light from children’s flashlights.
  • Be lightweight (approximate size 2-4 ft) and able to be hung from a branch with string.
  • Abstract and/or geometric in design with materials securely attached.
  • Consider designs that a breeze could create movement or sounds.
  • Lightweight and able to be hung from trees/bushes with string.
  • Some ideas for found and reused/repurposed materials that can be transformed are:
  • Pie tins, old CDs/DVDs, cellophane, mylar paper, metallic gift bags, shiny boxes, metallic ribbon, and used glow-in-the-dark stars. PLEASE NO GLITTER
