Our planet can be fertile and fruitful if we preserve it. It would be best if children acquire knowledge and awareness of the nature that surrounds us while they are still little and eager to learn how to do good, rather than something that will spoil nature.
Scientists and psychologists have proven that we all learn best by example. This is even more evident in children because they are open to new experiences and they acquire things fast and easily. Let us use this to plant positive thoughts and true values in their little heads. Talk to them on how and why we should take care of the planet, how to help, rather than harm it. And when they acquire all this and when they realize certain things themselves and start following your steps, use this and show them how they can help build a better tomorrow and some happier mornings.
Here are a few examples which can contribute to nature, which we can teach our children through their play activities:
PREVENT WATER FROM RUNNING VAINLY
One of the ways to influence our environment and preserve life-giving water is to prevent tap water from running without any purpose. I am sure it happened to all of us to let the water running and relax. but it is important to be cautious and to teach children by our own example that they should brush their teeth while preserving water since it is worth a lot.
WE SHOULD SAVE ELECTRICITY TOO SINCE IT IS WORTH TO US
Children like light because they are afraid of the dark, but in order to preserve nature we can relax children and put them to sleep even without the light. You can read them books adapted to their age, which teach them how to save the planet. I am not saying this is easy, but with patience and trust, we can show our children why this is important and how to save the planet and the environment.
TO MAKE THE NATURE LAST LONGER, DO NOT THROW AWAY OLD THINGS BUT DONATE THEM
Clothes and toys are getting increasingly piled up, after which they are thrown away since we either overgrew them or we got bored, and then the waste which damaging for the environment is created, and for us since we are a part of it. Therefore, we are not supposed to throw away old things but donate them instead, recycle and teach our children to do the same. Similarly, we could spend less on clothes and toys and instead of such gifts, we could treat ourselves and our children to travels, trips, films, plays and similar memorable experiences.
Children usually get bored when they have to do something, especially when we set things seriously, this is why we should turn everything we do into a game, into a treasure hunt, and to present to them and teach certain things in an amusing way. Teach children that old can become new, that plastic bottles can become bird feeders and that fruits and vegetables are most delicious when we plant them ourselves. Teach them to create, not to destroy themselves and nature. Be creative and imaginative, I believe that this can make your day, and children will be prepared for a cleaner and greener future that they built themselves.
