we have moved to an area that offers recycling. we've never lived anywhere where this is an option. the kids are very curious about it but all the bins are very confusing for them. ideas on how to make it easy and fun for them?
Do you mean the bins at home? You could take pictures and laminate them and tape to the bins. For example, glass bin = picutre of glass bottle, empty pickle jar, etc. Paper bin = picture of newspaper, envelope, paper bag, etc.
That sounds like a good way to make it simple for the children and adults.
Sometimes when Hope and I take the compost out we gather the leftover dried grass from the lawn for the green layer. We pretend we are gathering spices (rosemary, thyme, pepper, etc.) for our compost soup.
