Trash and garbage Collage
So, everyone's on the green movement now. Green houses, green car, green cleaners. What about green kids? Did you know littering clutters the ground with paper, bottles, and cans. It's also a bad use of very limited natural resources. It affects the whole environment. It changes the outdoors. It makes everything just a gross. Is that what you want your kids playing in?
What you're going to need is a littered area, some grocery bags, paper, glue and disposable or work gloves. Go on a litter walk. And pick it up, clean it up. You got to wear gloves because hey it's trash people. And don't let them pick up broken glass or dirty diapers. Common sense, please. When you're finished, give them the glue and paper to make a collage. Then get out the journals and write about the experience. Ask where all the trash came from, what would happen if no one picked up the trash, and how we can make sure it doesn't become litered again.
Then have your kids decorate litterbags for trash collection at home or in the car.
I know it's a small thing but maybe, just maybe, we can teach our kids that the world is not a garbage dump.
