To show the ways that children can care for the earth
The children will be able to give examples of ways to show responsibility in caring for God's creation.
One paper bag filled with the following items:
Reusable water bottle: cut down on trash by using a reusable water bottle, rather than buying a new plastic water bottle.
Used school supplies, such as erasers or old notebook binders: use products until they are finished so we don't waste them.
Cloth napkin: using cloth napkins allows us to save trees, which are cut down to make paper napkins.
Light bulb: conserve energy by turning out the lights.
Pop can: recycle.
T-shirt: wear more than once before washing to save water.
Gym shoe: walk, don't drive, which cuts down on pollution.
Toy car: carpool, which means fewer cars on the road and therefore less air pollution from cars.
Be sure that there are enough items in the bag for each child to have at least one.
