Toy museum makes hats from paper waste

Tartu Toy Museum (http://www.mm.ee/) has found creative ways of utilising paper waste provided by Kroonpress - by making paper hats from old newspapers and using paper reels as rolling canvases.

The museum, founded in 1994, exhibits toys that children in Estonia have played with throughout the ages, along with artist-made dolls, souvenir dolls from around the globe, traditional Finno-Ugric toys and theatre/animation puppets. 

In the play and workshop rooms paper is a commonplace raw material for creating new toys or just playing around with. The discarded newspaper reels are hung on the wall and once drawings cover the hanging paper, they are rolled down to reveal new fresh paper. The finished paper is then used alongside discarded newsprint for creating other items such as pretty hats. Reusing reused paper - heading in the right direction!
