Reduce, Reuse, Recycle…Create
This is a great opportunity for children to “learn green” while flexing their creative muscles during sessions of “open-ended” play. They describe it on their website…
When left to their own devices, most children do what educators label “open-ended” play. Adults watch and can remember back to the
days when brooms became wild horses
and towels were transformed into capes for superheros. At Resource Depot, old packing materials combined with lots of imagination become robots, remote control vehicles, and even a swimming pool complete with diving board.
So, while children gain respect for the planet, they’re also learning how to think, problem solve, and use their imaginations…and that’s no garbage!
