It’s never too early to teach your kids the importance of recycling. In fact, learning and implementing recycling measures in your home can be a fun and creative process for your little ones. In this week’s blog, we discuss four easy ways to teach your kids recycling.
The first step you can take to teach your kids about the benefits of recycling is by finding some books which address this matter. Some great ones include, “Don’t Throw That Away!: A Lift-the-Flap Book about Recycling and Reusing”, “Michael Recycle” and “I Can Save the Earth!: One Little Monster Learns to Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle”. After you’ve read the book, discuss and reflect on the ideas presented so your child or children understand why we should recycle and how it can positively affect our planet.
Get Creative with Personalised Bins
Now that your kids understand the importance of recycling, it’s time to get started on some fun recycling projects. A personalised recycling bin is a great activity to get the kids involved in. They can decorate them however they want with a label of what goes inside each bin. This is a perfect way to ensure your children don’t get too overwhelmed or confused.
Turn It Into a Game
Recycling can be both educational and fun. Make recycling a game by turning old water bottles into the classic carnival game. You can also transform old items into toys.
