For those of you who have been following my blog for a while, you know my son loves to take walks around the neighborhood to pick up trash. It’s a great, age-appropriate way to introduce young kids to helping the environment.
Interested in doing this with your child? It’s about as easy as it gets. I have him put on a rubber gloves to protect his hands from germy stuff (cigarette butts, tissues, etc.). Carry a bag to put the trash in. Head out the front door, and let your child pick up trash your child finds around the neighborhood. It’s kind of like treasure-hunting, but better for the environment.
