When out exploring, you’ll probably see litter around the landscape. Litter picking is an excellent learning opportunity, so why not go on an adventure with your child and show them how this simple act can help nurture a habitat for wildlife to flourish. This care for the environment will also make them aware that one person can make a big difference!
Top tip!Make an art sculpture or model out of your household rubbish using items such as food packets, cans, tins and waste paper.

About the activity
Head out with your child/children to an area polluted by litter –– perhaps an area by their school, or by a play area, park or your local beach. After making sure there’s nothing dangerous or harmful, simply pop on the gloves and get picking! Get your child to keep an eye out for wildlife, too, so they can see all the animals and insects that have a safer, tidier home thanks to their work.
