Create a recycling play

Find five objects in your house that can be recycled and give them all names.

For example:

  • Barry the Bag
  • Pete the Paper
  • Terry the Tin Can
  • Colin Cardboard
  • Alan the Aerosol

Create a play for them to be in. What would happen?

Maybe one of them is a super hero and is going to save the day?
