We collected small tin cans, plastic bottles and newspaper. We had a trash
can full of tin cans, plastic bottles, and wadded up newspaper. The kids
stood behind a line and tried to toss the recyclable into 3 different cans
that were about 3 feet away. Its kind of like ring toss, our kids had a
lot of fun with it.

Play a game using bean bags as cans and a hoola hoop as the recycling bin.
Stand in a circle around your "recycling bin" and sing this
Sung to: "5 In The Bed and the little one said"
There's a can in the bin and another goes in Recycle ! Recycle!
So ____________ (child's name ) recycled and threw in a can.
There's 2 cans in the bin etc.
Continue the song until all children have had their names called to throw
a bean bag. Great for large motor and counting and math.
