A Green Educational Creative Toy for the Holidays!
A Green Educational Creative Toy for the Holidays! Are you getting ready to buy holiday toys for your children? Our Kid’s Kit to save the planet from plastic bags is a wonderful educational toy. Lianda was the first one to come up with this idea which has been used extensively at Green Fairs all over Tucson.
As an educator, she knew that one of the areas that children love to learn about in school is the environment, ecology, global warming and what we can each do to protect the planet. The kids in her school were so concerned about helping the animals, and doing whatever they could do to teach their parents as well.
Most children, and even adults don’t understand the connection between oil and plastic. So Lianda spent a lot of time trying to write a short story of oil for children. In fact, many adults have read the book and say: "I didn‚t know that!" and that inspires them to take reusable bags to the store. It's actually a huge concept, but the booklet got the approval of child author Janie Sutton. (http://www.jane-sutton.com).
When children learn about the environment and how to Reduce, Reuse and Recycle, this is a lifetime lesson. With the Kid's Kit they are able to craft their bags with all the creativity of a child, combined with the new knowledge about how their creation of reusable bags will help save the planet! Believe me, once these children have made THEIR reusable grocery bags, they remind their parents to bring them to the store anytime they are making a shopping trip! So if you continue to forget to bring your reusable bags to the store, now your children will assist and remind you!
