Earth Day might still be a month away, but if you ask me it's always a great time to start teaching kids about taking care of the Earth! But where to begin? Perhaps one of the best places is with recycling! Recycling is such an easy change to make in our every day lives, and one that kids can easily pick up on and understand. What better place to start?

Today, I'm sharing a few simple tips to encourage kids to fall in love with recycling:



  • Watch Videos. For my kids, watching videos on any subject is a great way to get them interested. YouTube is sure to have variety of videos for all ages groups. You can find videos on the importance of or those showing just how it's done and what happens AFTER. 
  • Take a Tour. Seeing recycling in action can make such a difference for kids, so take them on a tour so they can see how its done! 
  • Put Them in Charge. My kids don't like 'chores' but they do love feeling like the boss! Recycling can be a great place to give them a little responsibility. Show them the ropes, and then hand over the reigns. Let them set up the bins themselves, put them in charge of keeping everyone on check, etc. 
  • Get Crafty. Another great way to teach hands on recycling is by letting kids do it themselves with a re-purposing craft project! It can be as big as creating a garden from an old tire--- or as simple as some toilet paper roll crafts. Seeing 'trash' become something new and beautiful can be such a great example of what recycling is all about! 
  • Reward It. Sometimes kids need that little extra motivation, so reward their efforts! Maybe that means something as simple as stickers or candy... or maybe it's allowing them to have all the money from recycling cans to put in their piggy banks. Find what works best for your child!
