#SocialParenting: Recycling Activity for Children
Teach children about the importance of recycling all while having some fun in the process! The Kindergarten Prep classroom at Bright Horizons at Foxboro (Foxboro, MA) created beautiful sculptures out of recycled materials provided by their teachers. While crafting the masterpieces, the children and their teacher discussed ways that we can help protect the Earth and what it means to “go green.” After the activity was completed, the students spent time writing about what they learned about recycling in their journals.
Watch this recycling activity for children in action! It also makes for a great craft that you and your family can do at home with materials found around your own house.
