Our family has always recycled and as my children have gotten older they now understand the importance of recycling and taking care of the earth we live in. It’s such a great feeling to teach your children about the things that really matter on this earth and start to see them apply these lessons.
One lesson we have always taught our children is to take care of the many blessings God has given us. This includes our home, our clothes, toys and this earth. I have seen my children pick up trash off the ground that was not theirs because they know that every little bit makes a difference.
It was pretty neat to introduce them to PepsiCo’s Recycle Rally program. Thousands of students across the nation are leading the way through PepsiCo’s Recycle Rally. Recycle Rally is a free nationwide program that directly benefits K-12 schools and students by providing valuable incentives and resources to help make recycling easy, fun, and rewarding.
It is so simple to get involved and only takes a few seconds of your day. We even let our toddler help.
So, we decided to make a craft this week to support this fun cause. We got out all of our craft supplies and each of my children created their own DIY recycling bin.
My toddler made a monster and the other two boys created robot bins. They love throwing the items they are recyling into their own special bin. It was fun for them to use their creativity and create something that made recycling even more fun.
They can even make a competition from it and see who has the most at the end of the week.
Back to school is always about new beginnings and new habits in our home and it’s a great time to encourage your kids to get involved in a recycling routine.
