Teaching Your Kids to Reuse/Recycle Batteries



Teaching kids to reuse or recycle batteries used in toys, games, and other electronic devices is easy and fun. Children understand that it takes batteries to make their toys work and once they begin to notice how quickly their batteries need replacing, teaching them how to use rechargeable batteries or to recycle the old ones is natural. Parents are a child’s most important role model and you can help train the future caretakers of our planet to act responsibly, plus the dollar savings add up quickly for parents too. Interactive games, coloring pages, and field trips to recycling centers are fun and have the added benefit of teaching kids responsible environmental habits. Make reusing batteries fun for your kids and save money for yourself!
