T-shirt bags, stop polythene bags, Go Green, Save Earth. These are some of the concepts all of us hear now a days.
All of us think we will follow it now. Some of us try to follow it for a while, get appreciated by friends and family. But it fades away with time. Few of us take this concept and make it our habit. Being grown up it takes a little longer and special effort to convert this into a habit.
We at our school shared this Recycled T-shirt bags, reusable bags, stop polythene bags, Go Green, Save Earth activity with students of Kindergarten and primary classes.
After doing this for years, I find, effort was worth.
Recycled T-shirt bags: I have seen this work in many sites, and it really wanted to try it. So, for the first time in 2012, I tried this as a project for my son. It was to engage a four year old into some productive play, while stabilising hand eye coordination and developing motor skills.
He was so happy to use these new T-shirt bags, with so many cartoon characters printed on it. And he used it to carry his toys for one room to another.
These were the 5 most interesting ways of making reusable bags in 2012.
And then after seeing how T-shirt bags developed a positive habit to my son. I tried the same with students of my class. And then it became an annual activity.
But year after year when we Google and found out more ideas to follow for T-shirt bags. The best 7 ideas that we found in 2019 are listed here for you:
The concept that we are trying to give to our children might not be making a bag every time they see an old t- shirt.
But for me it was firstly to keep them engaged, secondly to make them learn something new and then most importantly to teach them how much joy they get by making something.
And the cherry on top were the teaching I could indirectly give to him about environment, why we should avoid plastic bags, what will be our contribution to saving Earth etc.
Present status, all the bags that we have are reusable and eco friendly.
Wishing happiness to the whole world.
Go Green. I am doing my bit. There are many incidents, when my family or friends went shopping with me, and there is always a handy cloth bag that pops out of my purse or pocket. I always say no to polythene. But, how to help others do the same. I used my profession, teaching,as my opportunity. Every year, my students make a bag using their old t-shirt. Students enjoy doing this all by themselves. They are encouraged and appreciated on using these bags. It has become our annual activity. Make your own t-shirt bags
Save Earth, Bag your opportunity.
Please comment if you have more things that children can do at home to stay engaged and learn something important at the same time.
