10 Ways to Teach Children to Be Eco-Conscious


2. Turn cardboard boxes into art projects

The amount of cardboard boxes thrown away is ridiculous. Some of the funnest art projects I’ve done with my kids involved cardboard boxes. Depending on the size of the box you can make a spaceship, doll house or even theatre props like swords, crowns, and magic wands. There are also so many people who need empty boxes for moving etc. post empty boxes on the Internet and give them away for free. These should never be put in the dumpster!
