Green Tips for Children
2. The hermit crab finds out a toy block left on the beach and decides to recycle it and reuse it as his new home.
Inspired by these two simple examples, play with your child to reuse things from your home before they are thrown into to the recycling bin.
The important thing is to be creative and inventive, and have fun. Let your child experiment and come up with his/her own ideas. Even if those experiments end up in the recycling bin within a few days they served their purpose (FUN & LEARN).
Simple re purposing tips to start:
Newspaper -> Pirate Hat.
Empty paper towel rolls -> Great for making a Pirate Spyglass.
Empty jelly jars – > Drinking pirate glass.
Old magazines – > Beautiful collage / artwork.
This is just the beginning. The goal is to take an ordinary object, and with some simple craft tools, make it beautiful. You can get inspiration from a number of online sites, but we believe that it is very good to spend some time coming up with your own inventions. Spend ten minutes with your child thinking about how to reuse some of the stuff that you’re planning to throw away. You might be surprised by your child’s ideas. Let your child express those ideas.
