Milli and Jenny’s Recycling and Sustainability Show
January 23, 2024 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am
Milli and Jennys recycling and sustainability show takes children aged 3 to 8 on a journey to understand what common household waste can be recycled, repurposed or replaced with more sustainable options.
Milli the Hen and Jenny teach children how to identify recyclable waste by identifying the structure, feel and look of the waste, and to highlight what waste be used for composting and how we can avoid single use plastics and highlight the impacts of littering on the environment.
Suitable for children aged 3 to 8. The show runs for approximately 45 to 50 minutes and the children receive a colouring in/activity sheet.
Key Learning Outcomes:
- what type of things can be recycled?
- What type of things can we receive money for (10 cent containers for change) and what to do with soft plastics
- We teach children about what to do with batteries and other items (they go to drop off points at the local recreation centre)
- we assist children to create a plastic free lunchbox and picnic basket highlighting the need to decrease single use plastic items and how we can repurpose used containers (jars, ice cream tub and Milo tin) to store foods in.
- the children learn about the impact litter has on our environment
