This Saturday at the Magellan International School, I’ll be teaching a plastic bag crochet workshop from 2-2:30 for kids (ages 8-12 years old) and their parents. Details are below:
Día del Niño Verde will feature an innovative Pop-Up Adventure Playground created with recycled, reusable items. A Pop-Up Adventure Playground encourages children to create their own worlds out of everyday reusable items such as stacks of newspapers, tires, boxes, and ropes. While it may be hard to envision these materials as toys, children unfailingly turn them into something fun and imaginative and have a great time doing so.
Other activities include bilingual workshops for all ages in environmental education topics, music demos by Semillitas de Español, children’s art and craft activities, our first MIS talent corner featuring student performances, local healthy food vendors, and a local Farmer’s Market with earth friendly products and services as well as fresh produce presented byGreen Gate Farms.
Little Miss Recycle will host an electronic waste (e-Waste) drive to collect unused and disposable electronics and electronic parts that cannot be disposed of through standard methods of waste collection and recycling. The drive preserves finite resources, and prevents health hazards which often occur as a result of improper electronic waste disposal.
Día del Niño Verde is being hosted by The Magellan International School which won the Green Ribbon School Award in 2011 and integrates green initiatives throughout its multi-cultural, multi-lingual curricula. The school strives to be a zero-waste campus and is co-hosting this annual event with Little Miss Recycle to inspire and educate the community.
