Recycling: Earth Week Unit Study Tags: recycling unit study

EARTH WEEK! Even at a young age, there are lots of things your kids can do to be more eco friendly. ClickWays Your Kids Can Help to get some ideas! And reduce that carbon footprint!

UNIT STUDY
Recycle Box
Start a recycle box! It's amazing all the stuff that can be recycled that normally gets thrown away. Make sure you find out your city's recycling rules, they often vary from area to area. We found putting a list of recyclables on the refrigerator helps. Also posting signs up have a visual reminder about paper, plastic and glass. Kiley has been such a big help taking the recyclables down to the box and keeping us on our toes. I like saving glass jars and bottles when we've used up the contents inside. They are good for storing our dehydrated fruit, leftovers, utensils, art supplies and etc. I've made homemade goodies and salsa, put it inside the glass jar and given them as gifts too!



Make A Compost Bin
If you're family eats as many fruits and veggies as we do then a compost bin would be great to start! Especially if you're into gardening. I was surprised to find out how much you can compost that isn't food. Like wine corks, latex balloons, receipts and the dust crud inside the vacuum cleaner! VisitTLC 75 Things You Can Compost for a list. Since we live in a townhouse and have a small backyard we opted for a compost bin instead of a pile. Now when I'm making dinner, I'll save food for compost and Kiley will take it out for me when I'm done. Visit to Green Sprouts learn how to build a composter.



Melt Crayons
There's almost always broken and leftover unused crayons in Kiley's art desk. We have found a fun way to make them reusable instead of trash! First you'll want to remove any wrapper that's left on them. Second, find an old muffin pan and set the oven to 300 degrees. Put crayons in the muffin pan. You can do like colors or throw in an assortment to make a rainbow crayon! The crayons don't take long to melt so watch closely. Last, when they have fully melted, take out and let them cool all the way. Then pop them out and you have cookie colors! They color pretty well in small spaces for being such big crayons. But are great for quickly coloring large pages. *I would like to find a mold so we can melt fun shaped crayons!

Do Feminists Hate Little Girls?

Do Feminists Hate Little Girls?

As if feminists weren't already completely irrelevant, they are going all out to attack Lego for daring to build a line of Lego's that is more appealing to little girls than the traditional lines have been. In a world where women are objectified in every movie, on every billboard, on every magazine isle, where clothing manufacturers push little girls' clothing that would be skimpy on the girls' toy dolls, let alone themselves, and where porn has saturated every nook and cranny of our society, how dare those chauvinist pigs at Lego headquarters make pink Lego's!

When I first heard about the new "girly Lego's," I thought, "Great, it is about time." Lego's are one of my favorite toys for kids. They encourage kids to build and create. The problem was, in the past girls have been less interested in Lego's because all the themes were more appealing to boys - dragons, castles, soldiers, pirates, and spaceships. Girls often overlooked Lego's in favor of more "girly" toys, like Barbies, and in doing so missed out on the benefits of creating and building that Lego's encourage.

So, why are the feminists outraged over the new Lego line?
