Through activities like these you can teach them about the importance of recycling and trash management as well. You can make use of ordinary materials that they are commonly exposed to, say plastic water bottles or throwaways. By using items that they are familiar with – they will have a deeper grasp of the reality and severity of trash population and hopefully will make them see as well the urgency of coming up with solutions to solve the problem.
Using Arts to Combat Trash Pollution
Keep in mind that art changes people and people change the world, so you can get creatively green through meaningful arts project to raise environmental awareness to the public especially to young children. Don’t underestimate the effect of arts to people; in fact make use of it to communicate the important message of saving our planet. You can make it even sweeter by involving as much people as possible in the creating process – this will give them a sense of accountability, responsibility and pride at the same time.
You will be surprised to find out how young children can tend to be more receptive and proactive when it comes to doing something about trash pollution. Children do have the innocence in them that sees things as it is, their thought process is quite simple - it’s not good to litter, period. Compare to “it’s-not-good-to-litter-but-I’m-too-lazy-to-find-the-trash-can,” thought processing. This is the very reason why it’s very important for us to set good examples and instill values in them especially at a young age.
Be Creative. Be Green
