-The other day I overheard my niece and nephew (niece, 6 yrs & nephew, 5 yrs) talking about recycling. I’ve always recycled and have been trying to get them and their parents to recycle , so I figured this was the perfect opportunity to teach them a little bit more . This is a very simple project you can do with your kids. Enjoy 🙂
1.Saved any item which could be recycled
2.Printed out basic information on recycling and recycling coloring pages
3.Used cardboard boxes to make separate “bins” for glass, plastic bottles, aluminum, cardboard and newspaper. I used colored card stock and glued it on to one side of the box then glued on the title and recycling sign which I had printed out.
4. Had the kids separate recyclable items into their correct bin. (They really loved smashing the plastic bottles!)
5. Then they colored their recycle signs coloring pages and made collages out of old magazine clippings, stickers and bottle caps.
