Rural Cleanup Day!
People say a better world starts with yourself!
There's a lot of truth in that... things don't change all of a sudden, but step by step you can improve a situation.
But you have to clean up the mess behind you every day, right? Yes, it is, but it doesn't hurt to bring it to your attention. When you look around you outside, you notice that there is a huge amount of litter. In addition to the fact that it gives an unkempt impression, it also puts nature and the animals that live there at risk.
Learning young is done old. By making our children aware of their environment, they can learn to take responsibility for their behavior. A change begins with an awareness of something you do and what you let. You also work on the social connection with your neighbourhood and the people who live there, which also helps to be involved and sociable with your neighbourhood and neighbours.
This way of life and being conscious is also calledzero waste.
You can ask yourself two things:
1. How can you adjust your lifestyle so that you create less waste?
2. And how can I deal with this waste and give it a second life?
The Cleanup Day is focused on the neighbourhood or environment in which you live, go to school etc. By asking attention nationally, and thus investing, you tackle the litter problem together.
Children not only learn that you keep nature tidy, but it's also very good to know that you don't have to throw away a lot of material but can recycle it.
In short, enough reason to work with each other, with your neighborhood or with your class, every bet is worth it! With a garbage picker/gripper and garbage bag you can go a long way. Inform via the website about the possibilities! See below the clickable link to the website!
On the website: https://webshop.supportervanschoon.nl/ you can also get free posters to draw attention to this and draw attention to them to participate!
What else can you do with this valuable Cleanup Day?
It is good to know that this Cleaning Day for children can be part of a piece of awareness. You can build on this theme even further by paying attention to recycling. Perhaps you are already paying attention to it by collecting separate waste. And by consciously dealing with what you may or may not throw away.
To be aware of what you can do with materials I have here a lot of fun craft tips that you as they call them are made with free material. Hopefully you will find a lot of inspiration here and you will remain aware of the need to reuse materials.
After all, you give material a second life again!
You can make beautiful things by rolling paper from magazines or leaflets. On the left you see a beautiful painting: this is made by Eline
On the right you see a picture showing a silhouette that is filled with paper rolls.
This is how you do it:Draw a silhouette, for example, from your favorite animal, on a piece of cardboard. Then cut strips of colored paper from old magazines and magazines and paste them neatly inside the contours of your drawing. This way you can create a beautiful work of art for your own room or to give a gift. Cheap craft tip from Speelgoedbank Amsterdam for children and parents.
