Resources for children and families
This activity aims to promote creativity, imagination and encourage children to look after the environment, based on the book ‘Charlie and Lola: Look After Your Planet’ by Lauren Child. At the bottom of the page you can view and download PDF posters with ideas for activities and questions.
Activities you can do with children
- Find out what interests your child. Perhaps tractors, fairies, animals, bugs, or activities like fishing, tennis or gardening.
Remember to reuse materials you would put in the recycling bin.
- You could get really creative with textures and colors. Emma made an enormous bright yellow sunflower out of cardboard and tin foil, whilst Kelly made a magnificent pink castle out of cardboard tubes and wrapping paper.
This activity aims to promote reuse from the Three R’s of Recycling
Reduce - to use fewer resources.
Reuse - repurposed instead of throwing away materials.
Recycle - placing waste material aside to be recycled instead of throwing in the bin.
