Recycle Game

What You Need:

  • Brightly colored posterboard
  • Glue
  • Recycling themed pictures that complement each other
  • Scissors

What You Do:

  1. Help your child cut out rectangle shapes from the brightly colored posterboard.
  2. Surf the Internet and pick out various recycling themed pictures that go with each other. For example, a stack of newspapers and a newspaper recycling bin, a plastics recycling bin and a picture of a plastic bottle.
  3. Print out the pictures.
  4. Cut the pictures to size so they fit on the rectangle cards.
  5. Have your child glue one picture on each card.
  6. Let the cards dry for an hour or so.
  7. Now the fun begins! Have them spread out all the cards so the blank side is facing up.
  8. Let them pick up two cards and flip them over. Ask them if they match.
  9. If the cards don't match, let them flip them over and try again. If they do, they can remove them from the pile. As the game goes along, talk to them about each type of recycling.
  10. Continue the game until you have matched up all the cards.
