Taking care of ourselves & our planet

Creating learning moments in Nature

We love to go for nature walks so what better way to get the kids out and also help teach them about Mother Earth, Science, and Math!

The kids are learning to keep the Earth clean by picking up litter and recycling by sorting the cardboard, paper, tin, aluminum, plastic and glass.

We donate the Capri Sun pouches to our church for their fundraising brigade with Terracycle: http://www.terracycle.net/

The kids actually keep a log to reinforce their counting and writing skills also.

I love to educate children about the small steps they can make a big difference by reducing, reusing, and recycling...GO GREEN!
