Celebrate America Recycles Day

Friday, November 15, 2019 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm

Friday, November 15: Celebrate America Recycles Day  

Reduce, reuse, recycle! Today we’re focused on these three important words as we learn about why recycling is so important. Bring some recycled materials from home to help us teach your little recycler how their such small actions can make a big impact.  

Purpose Behind the Play: collaboration, self-regulation, creative expression, healthy lifestyle habits, problem-solving, and literacy.  

  • Smart Art (Times Vary): Recycle City > Help us build our recycle city in the Art Studio. We will be reusing recycled materials to create a beautiful cityscapeWhat will you transform paper rolls, popsicle sticks, and cotton balls into?  Feel free to bring some items from the home to add to this collaborative project.  
  • Sensational Story Time (3:00 pm): Don’t Throw That Away Saving the environment is super cool! Gather with us as we read this fun flap book to discover how we can repurpose ordinary household objects into new treasures. After the story, we will use recycled materials to create our own new gems.  

Grown-Up Tip: Look around your home and find items you can recycle. Use an empty cardboard box as a recycling bin for aluminum, plastics, or paper. You and your child can decorate the box and put in an accessible place. Your child will share a newfound interest in recycling with playmates and your family.
