Recycling helpers

One way to teach our kids about taking care of our world is through recycling.

Here are some ideas on what your child can do to help your family recycle. Even little ones can do most of these:

  • Put items in your recycling bin.  You can keep it in a convenient location that everyone knows about.
  • Help return cans and plastic bags to the grocery store.  Kids can help put them in the machines at the store, or hand them in to the store employees.
  • Take the recycling bin out to end the of the driveway on pick-up day
  • Bring the recycling bin back in from the end of the driveway once they’ve been cleaned out
  • Talk about the recycle symbol on items and look for them on containers
  • Draw pictures of items that can be re-used around the house

What other ideas do you have?
