Education is best started early. The earlier we can make our kids aware of the importance of recycling, the better future we are looking into. Many schools have begun introducing recycle to the young students. It is even more ideal if parents can be more actively supportive to this by training kids to put the right waste to the right bin. For this you’ll first need to provide different bins for different wastes. Then you need to train your children which wastes are best to put where. Plastic wastes such as milk jugs and soda bottles to the plastic bins and paper wastes to the paper bins and so on.
And what’s a better education than giving them fun games to play? We are so lucky we are in the internet era where finding such games is super easy. Check out some links below containing of cool kids recycling games. Accompany them while they’re playing and assist them when they have difficulties. Then get them to apply that in real life.
