Earth Day is coming up (April 22nd, just a few days away) making this idea perfect for today!
The idea of composting is AMAZING – taking food waste and garbage, turning it into rich soil, to then grow food again. AMAZING! But it is tough for children to really understand this. It takes time … a lot of time. But not when you do it on a teeny tiny scale.
We made a little compost a few weeks ago, and it worked great! The kids could really get the idea for how a compost works – and best of all you only need two things:
Sandwich bags and a straw.
That’s it! Well, of course your food waste, “browns” (like egg cartons), and water too.
Within a couple of weeks you will have soil. Pop on over to CBC kids to read all the details!
Thank you for reading!
