Today we rolled up our sleeves, walked to our fav local park and picked up trash. It certainly isn’t the most fun job in the world but it’s an important one!
What you Need
This is an easy activity that really doesn’t take much planning. All you really need is a couple of plastic bags, some disposable gloves or a trash picker and a good attitude :).
How to make it fun
At face value, going out to pick up trash isn’t the most exciting activity in the world but there are certainly ways to make it fun! We started by picking one of our fav parks to go to, with the promise of playing at the park once we were done. We then grabbed two grocery bags. This gave us a goal, we were going to fill two bags then it would be time for fun.
Once we got there, we made it into a bit of a scavenger hunt. My little guy helped me find the trash and I picked it up! Simple as that. Once a bag was full we tied it up and into the trash it went!
It was amazing to see how much of a difference two small bags of garbage can make. When we were done the park was spotless and we certainly felt good about ourselves. Best part, it only took about 15 minutes to clean the park 🙂
