School Stories: Hubcaps everywhere


Each child at school had to bring $2.50 for a hubcap.

Each child had to clean a hubcap so that they could paint it.

Curtis is one of my After school care children. He is only 5 years old and still very young for his group. He wanted to show me his painted hubcap.

Here he is looking for his hubcap

He said this is his and I took a photo.

He turned around and said it wasn’t his!

His was still on the bench because it had not dried yet.

He showed it to me and

as you can see he did an excellent job.

The end result!

Hubcaps on the fences.

    1. Indeed. It also gave the school a bit of income by asking $2.50 per hubcap. I think they made a deal with the scrapyard to get them for free. Very creative!

    1. Ja jong, ons twee is groot tjommies as dit by speletjies kom. Ons hardloop altyd reisies, Hy moet natuurlik wen! Ek is “te oud” om hom te kan wen. Jy weet mos hoe dit is. Hy was n vroeggebore kindjie en is nog baie regte klein kind(nie rerig skoolgaan stadium nie!)

        1. Beslis ja. Ek onthou ook nog van die storietjies wat my oupa nog uit sy ou barret gehaal het. Ek gaan n storietjie in Afrikaans skryf oor die einste seuntjie en sy swemmery. Sal nog daarby kom.
