We all agree that our earth needs saving and it is our collective responsibility to do so.
It is a life lesson we can teach children starting from when they are very young.
In these recessionary times, think outside the box in relation to natural materials for play.
They are all around us if we look using all our senses as we encourage children to do
You can engage in many of the above suggestions with your child at home
In doing this we give children the tools and knowledge that they need for their future world.
“We do not inherit the world from our ancestors; we borrow it from our children.” -Native American Proverb – Tribe Unknown
* Thank you to Naionra Cois Ba in Bayside for the photographs of their fabulous recycled art.
The children of Naionra Cois Ba in Bayside quickly embraced the concept of re-cycling in the pre-school. The children began to think about how they might use everyday materials to creatively represent their experiences. Each day after lunch children were involved in washing out containers and bottles that they would later use. Empty boxes were suddenly seen as treasure! The practitioners supported children by documenting their words and displaying their wonderful creations.
