3. Nature Walk
Taking nature walks is a good trick to help the kids interact more with the environment. Choose a neighborhood that is not very busy to explore with them. Take trash bags and have them look out for litter. When they find it, let them sort it into the proper trash bag.
How Kids Can Reuse The Items They Recycle
Many of the activities listed above help kids learn to reuse materials. Turn the materials into toys or new art pieces for your little ones. They can build collages by cutting out images they find in newspapers to create collage art. Poetry collage might also be fun and productive. The kids can cut out words and rearrange them into new ideas or sentences.
Old bottles and bottles can be transformed into reusable cups and vases, using decorations and paint. With empty bottles, you can create a water twister or even make your own bowling alley. Even music instruments like a guitar, flute or maraca can be made. Make the kids pick out the items they can reuse and help them see that creating new things out of old ones can be fun.
When kids learn basic recycling skills at home, they can reach out and spread the word to ensure that even their friends and people at school are sorting recyclables. What we do today determines whether or not we have a sustainable future. Teaching them good habits, like recycling for kids, will make sure your children know the importance of helping the environment.
