Yahoo, I put this egg carton in the right basket!
After all, even a toddler is capable of picking up a scrap of paper off the floor and carrying it to the bin. But what bin should he put it in? In our previous neighbourhood, there were five different bins! If a scrap of paper happened to be gift wrapping paper after a holiday frenzy, it had to go in the garbage.
Aside from plain garbage, there is a bin where all the plastic, paper and glass go. For instance, broken glass should still go in the garbage, and not all the plastics are recyclable. Old-style light bulbs go in the garbage, but fluorescent light bulbs should be disposed of as hazardous materials.
All three of these objects are mostly glass, but none are recyclable! How to Play the Recycling Game In the game template, you will find sixty tokens with different items to dispose of and six bins.
Print them on thick paper and cut them out with scissors or a circle punch. The rules of the recycling game are simple: Prepare a number of bins to match the amount of bins your neighbourhood uses. For a simple version, try just two bins: Put all the tokens face down on the table. Each player picks up one random token and decides which bin to place it into.
Correct answers get one point, and the person with the most points at the end of the game wins. While the game is more educational than creative and fun, something about the topic of garbage rather appeals to kids, so I got a lot of giggles from my son as he sorted through the pictures!Here is a HUGE collection of all the printables from the season of spring!
