Lately, one thing we’ve been bashed over the head with is that we contribute far too much waste to our natural environment. Of late the biggest offender seems to be plastics and other non-biodegradables. Now while we can’t have them playing UK slots due to the age restrictions there’s plenty of viable other options.
But how can we start improving on this?
Well for starters the biggest change you can make is at home by including your kids in some fun activities that keep them entertained and also instill how important it is to look after the ecosystem. We’ve come up with a few suggestions below that you can try out for yourself!
Turn anything into a game and your kids will naturally love it since it’s fun. So, with that in mind why not try some eco-friendly games that educate and entertain the little ones.
For example, give the kids a list of recyclables on a card that they need to find, sort and then put away. Once they do that you can award a prize for whoever can fill their card in the fastest. It’s basically like a game of bingo that you would find on Umbingo, but kid-friendly.
Another game you can try is to see who can make the biggest pile of recyclable items. This encourages competition between the kids and will result in them scouring your house with a fine-tooth comb to find recyclables, perfect for those big summer cleans.
Arts & Crafts
Why not encourage your kids to be more creative with some art projects featuring recyclables?
Turn trash you have lying around into fun folk art that you can then hang onto as your kids get older for a nice piece of nostalgia.
You can use egg-cartons to make those classic cartoon crocodiles, or dragons if your children prefer fantasy monsters. Why not take some old plant pots, run some string through and turn them into make-shift stilts for your kids to clomp around on?
Turn old washing up bottles into spaceships, or even cut up some old cardboard and make a fort or sets of armour that let your kids pretend to be knights or swashbuckling pirates!
There’s a ton of cool creative things you can do with recyclables, the only limit is your imagination.
Finally, try getting your kids out in the garden as often as you can. Teaching them the importance of looking after plants will allow them to look after the environment better as adults, plus it lets you bond with your kids.
You could even start small by letting your children dig seed holes or by giving them their own mini-planters to look after. Although, try and get something cheap since children can get bored fast.
There’s so many fun things you can do to be eco-friendly at home with your kids, but the most important thing is that they learn how important our environment is and why we should look after it.
So, the next time your kids are bored, why not try one of our suggestions above!
