Description

With Recycle and Play, learn how to turn items you already have around the house into fun, engaging, and enriching activities for young learners.

Playful learning at home doesn’t have to require expensive, specialized toys and resources. Each activity in Recycle and Play uses inexpensive materials like cardboard, paper tubes, plastic bottles, and egg cartons—materials that might even already be on their way to a landfill—and offers a clear, thoughtful invitation for hours of sensory play at home while reinforcing the importance of reducing waste to benefit the earth.

In this book, you’ll find tips on how to extend play and learning for each project as well as helpful hints to engage your kids to come up with fun additions and extensions of their own.

While each of the 50 projects includes clear step-by-step instructions and materials lists, you should feel free to adjust to your child’s interests and the materials you have on hand.

Featured learning skills include:
  • Fine motor skills
  • Color recognition
  • Sensory exploration
  • Pretend play
Play is a crucial part of a child’s cognitive development and is fantastic for sensory exploration, building creativity, and discovery about how things work!
