This week we’re providing you with a few fun environmentally friendly activities. I don’t know about you but we at Kidding Around like this planet a lot! It’s important that we take care of the earth and develop good habits we can pass down to our children. Being at home you might start to notice the amount of waste you're producing. We have found a few ways you can support the environment, upcycle unwanted trash, and have fun while doing it. Don't forget to support sustainable companies.

Build a fort:
Ordering more than usual these days? Give those boxes a second life and create a fun hideaway with your kids.
Make your own toys:
Don't have enough to play with. Gather old scraps of paper and magazines and make a collage. Turn a cardboard box into a labyrinth with some popsicle sticks and glue. Turn an old bottle into a flower vase with some paint. See what materials you can collect this week and try making something out of the box.
Not all food scraps need to go in the trash. Put that half eaten apple or the wilted lettuce you have sitting in your fridge to use and start composting today!
Donating can be a great way to get rid of other items that may be collecting dust in your house. Look up recycling programs in your area. Below are a few programs we discovered but there are plenty more.
