To reduce packaging by making homemade cleaning products
Key Stage 1
Curriculum links: Sc1 2a-g. Geography 5b.
What to do: Investigate with the children how many bottles and boxes of cleaning products their families buy each week. All the product packaging ends up being thrown away. Offer some alternative ideas to buying cleaning products from the shops. You may find that if you ask parents for suggestions on how to clean using natural sources and materials, many weird and wonderful ideas may be offered. You can have a lot of fun trying out the different ideas.
