Recycle Project with Your Baby and Toddler

Recycle Mission

A new look at junk, or change the world, one bit at a time…


How to Start?

Starting with the basics is a great way to teach your child fun recycling projects.

Must do’s:

It is important to identify the 3 R’s for your toddler so that he/she can distinguish 3 key ways to reduce his/her ecological footprint, that is, his/her impact on the environment:

Shop wisely to save resources. Can the container be easily recycled or reused? Will a larger container reduce the amount of packaging and perhaps cost less per serving? Is everything that can be recycled being recycled?

Save resources *plus money* by asking yourself if the item is something you really need, and if it is well suited for the task, and if it will last. Not only can this save you money, it can save you space and work, too. 5 toys that are loved an played with are more fun than 10 toys that are broken or are boring to play with. And it’s quicker to pick up 5 toys and put them away than to pick up 10.

A house with no room left for us but only loaded with everything we “liked” really doesn’t sound like that much fun, even to my kiddies.

    hi mamafiza
    i just back home from a 7-day bed rest in serdang hospital due to some pregnant complication-water bag leaking,severe vomitting and pale-.
    Syukur Alhamdulillah finally the obgyn has confirmed that my 24-week-old baby is in excellent condition.
    There are some interesting progress to share with you.
    My husband has ment through your blog for so many times to educate himself about homeschooling.
    I didnt know that he practiced one of the technique you suggested in your blog-how to train the toddler to use tooth brush-
    When i come back home, my 14-month-old son was so eager to show me his progress in toothbrushing. I am so happy and decided to begin home school as soon as possible.
    I’ve download the hs planner that you provide in your blog and need some time to prepare all the necessary things to start the class.
    Now me and hubby are so busy decorating a room for our son-like one you have for ur 3-chans.. 🙂
    pray for my success ya…i am really happy to get a friend like you.
    may Allah bless you and ur family.
