Place bins for materials like paper, cardboard boxes, glass and plastic bottles, aluminum cans and newspapers at home. You could decorate the bins with your little ones, giving each bin a name, and assigning kids the responsibility to ‘feed’ them regularly.
Encourage them to recycle by putting a reward system in place, with a set goal of how many items should be recycled weekly. You can set up a chart with stickers or get creative and make something out of recyclable materials.
For example, cut the shape of a flower stem and several petals out of colourful scrap paper. Then, affix the flower to a wall and add a new petal to the flower for every item your child recycles.
