Earth Day Blog Hop- Recycle!

Earth Day is just around the corner! 
I'm super excited to be participating in this wonderful collaborative effort 
on Earth Day books and activities today! Please make sure to hop on over and
check out all of the great books and activities being shared!

The book I am choosing to share is called, Why Should I Recycle?
This book is a wonderful way to get children thinking about social responsibility 
through  reusing and recycling! The book is a little long, 
but with creative reading and storytelling, 
you can shorten the story for younger listeners :).

We recycle A LOT! 
Today, I'm also recycling posts... 
Here are a few of our favorite activities where we 
"reused" "recycled" or "upcycled" 

I could go on and on and on.....

We re-purpose A LOT! If you are interested in more, feel free to check the archives!
