Teaching Kids the Importance of Recycling

Posted on 04-22-2016

Earth Day is here and it’s a great chance to teach your child about the importance of taking care of the environment. There are several ways you can incorporate earth-friendly habits in to your life and one of the easiest is through recycling.

The first step to teaching your child about recycling is making it a fun experience! Since recycling involves sorting and containers, it’s the perfect set-up for a basketball game. Line up your recycling bins and have your children practice tossing paper, cardboard, and other lightweight recyclables in to the bin. If you have more than one child, try assigning a particular recyclable item to each child and have them go on a “treasure hunt” around the house and neighborhood looking for his/her specific recyclable item. Reward their efforts with a pre-determined prize (ice cream cone, day at the park, etc.) if they reach a certain goal.
