 Something To Do:

Any season is a good time to encourage recycling activities for your kids. Examiner.com had a wonderful article on summer recycling projects that amuse and educate kids at the same time. Here’s an excerpt:

Many children are learning a lot about the value of recycling while they’re in school and during the school year  you can help your children continue to learn about recycling while they’re having fun:

  • School folders.  One easy task that will help them prepare for the next school year – help them reorganize their school folders, then recycle the paper and reuse the folders.  See the Get Organized article “Keep the Gems…” for a step-by-step process you can use with your child.
  • Tie dye project.  Tie-dye t-shirts to reuse the shirts or donate to charity.  Go to Kinder Art for instructions suitable for ages 4 and up.
  • Arts-and-crafts.  Plan arts-and-crafts projects that use recycled materials or focus on other sustainability practices.  Visit Kaboose and Crafts for Children for lots of ideas suitable for different ages.

Think that’s “just a cardboard box?” Think again! Here’s some great kid-friendly crafts to turn a cardboard box into a boxful of FUN.
