Have a Recycling Relay Race
Add a unique twist to taking out the garbage, recycling, and yard waste by turning it into a relay race for the whole family. The rules are simple: nobody can move while they’re holding onto a bag of recycling, garbage, or yard waste. To succeed, your family will have to create a line and pass the bag along from the garbage can in your kitchen, for example, to the bins outside. When your kids aren’t holding onto a bag, they have to run from the back of the relay line to the front to continue the chain. Activities like relay races encourage your kids to cooperate and come up with creative solutions to problems.
