Recycled Materials Used for Children's Activities
It is very important for children to conserve the environment and appreciate their surroundings. In order to keep them busy and also teach them the importance of the environment, one can perform a lot of educational and fun activities with the recyclable material available at home.
Sharing readily available recyclable materials for children's activities:
One of the easiest materials available in everyone's houses. Collect the cardboard boxes that you receive from Amazon or Flipkart. These boxes can be used in various ways for children's activities.
- Cut a piece of card board and let your child do free hand painting. It can become a canvas for him.
- You can cut different shapes and use it for school projects, number activities and literacy games.
- Card board is one of best materials to do craft activities.
Bubble Wrap :
A lot of bubble wrap is used as packaging material. Instead of throwing it, it can be used for painting. Take a piece of bubble wrap, apply some paint and let your child dab it on a piece of paper. Children love the wonderful texture of the bubble wrap painting.
Plastic Bottles :
Instead of throwing the plastic bottles and harming the environment, one can cut the bottles into halves and make it into planters. Bottles can used for craft activities too. Use your creative skills and paint the bottles.
Bottle Caps :
You can not only save bottles but can use their caps too for activities for children. These caps come in very handy for color recognition, sorting, number and language activities for kids.
Another very versatile material for children's activities. You can use newspapers to make paper bags, use it for gift wrapping materials and also can be used for paper mache. A lot of pictures can be sued from the newspapers to make a collage.
Cans/ tins :
Instead of throwing away coke cans, decorate them and make cute pen stands for your child's study table.
Involve your children in all these activities and see how much they enjoy themselves. Let them explore and have fun with all the materials. Children do not need expensive toys to learn and play. By suing the recyclable material, they won't only enjoy themselves but also learn how to make the most of what is available to them. It is better to start young and teach them the importance of conserving the environment.
