Hands up if your resources budget just does not stretch far enough. Follow our do-it-yourself guide to resourcing your setting using all sorts of recycled materials
Elephants never forget…that recycling can be fun!
While we teach children about the value of recycling, do we always practice what we preach? We can forget how easy it can be to find and make things for our setting that look good and last well. The following ideas are designed to encourage you, as practitioners, to consider alternatives to buying new resources. Once you try a few, you will quickly come up with more ideas of your own – and once you get the children and their families interested in the project, you will find that everyone will have new ideas. Consider holding a recycling week, or appointing someone to take responsibility for gathering and sharing recycling ideas. Try to look beyond the setting and encourage a range of local people to get involved – you will find that if you think about your wider community, the wider community will think of you!
