Creating fun experiences for children doesn’t need to be expensive or difficult. I love to involve my children in experiences with recycled materials or in helping us to upcycle items we find that might look like rubbish but in fact can provide hours of fun with just a little effort.
I believe that introducing the concept of sustainability in play and in their day to day environment is one of the most important learning opportunities you can provide for children in today’s busy and often throw away society.
I know it can sometimes seem a little daunting though which is why I have collected some ideas and inspiration for you below. Some of the resources and activities require a little more preparation than others but there are plenty of quick and easy ideas too.
There is fun for both indoor and outdoor play…I hope you have fun exploring!
