Litter Patrol!

Young kids tend to be passionate about causes to do with the Earth and ecology. Grab a sturdy plastic garbage bag, some rubber gloves, and a few sticks for picking up litter, and head to a park where you can do a little clean-up. Talk about litter, garbage, and recycling and how we can help control what we put into the environment and take care of our surroundings. Be sure to help your kids understand what’s appropriate to pick up or what needs help from adults (like picking up broken bottles, etc.)
