My kids recycle, they turn off the water when they brush their teeth and turn off the light when they leave the room. They pick up trash when they see it on the way to the park. They know the three r's (reduce, reuse, recycle). I might think my kids are special but I really just think they're just doing what they must do, what every child must do. The world is different today and that's just how it is.

With this thought in mind, I approached the director of my preschool about instituting a recycling program. The amount of water bottles we toss at lunch... ug. The amount of construction paper we toss after completing projects... double ug. And guess what! She's onboard! She's asked me to compile a list of items the children can recycle but I'd also like to include a list of simple things children can do every day to help the environment.
What are your thoughts? What do your kids do to help? Please leave a comment... I have one week to compile the list. Thanks in advance!
