Field Trip to the Recycling Center

A couple weeks ago Ellie and Zelda's little preschool class took a field trip to the local recycling center. It was fun! They were so excited to bring things to recycle; Ellie emptied out the whole recycling bin in our kitchen into a bag to bring with us.

When we got there we all met in a classroom, where one of the recycling center employees gave a lesson to the kids on recycling and then took us on a tour of the facility.

The kids had a lot of fun. Ellie and Zelda especially liked the machine that shredded paper. I favored the machine that crushed up glass into sparkly little bits.

(I love this girl. I can't believe how big she is - she really looks like a school-age kid.)

(And I love this chubby little baby. She is mine, and that makes me so happy.)

(And I love this tiny little wisp of a girl, whose big personality more than makes up for her diminutive size.)

At the end of the field trip, the woman who gave us our tour printed up pictures of all the kids (she took headshots of them when we got there) that we then cut out an pasted into books about recycling. As the kids flipped through the pages, they got to see themselves in a story about recycling.

Ever since the field trip, it has been a daily occurrence for one of the girls to excitedly point out the recycling symbol on some type of packaging. 

It's too bad that their preschool year ends in two weeks. They have so much fun every Thursday!
