You Will Need:
Three plastic bins, pens, paper, and tape
Talk with your child about why it is important to recycle materials. Together, make 3 signs for the bins: Plastics, Metal, and Paper. Explain to your child what materials should go in each bin by saying things like “When we’re done with the Raisin Bran, let’s put the box in the Paper bin” and “When we finish the plastic container of juice, let’s put it in the Plastics bin.”
Make recycling part of the family culture. If possible, visit the local recycling center.
