Jimmy's Green Challenge is a great new way to help kids get in the know about everyday things they can do to help protect the environment (starting today). It is a kit that comes with an award-winning book, Jimmy's Gone Green, four wristbands, a poster, and a refrigerator magnet.
I am a firm believer that when you teach the little ones such things are important, they embrace that and will do them all throughout the rest of their lives. Teaching environmental responsibility is huge in my book, and I love that Jimmy's Green Challenge offers ten easy lessons that are both experiential (hands-on) and intellectual (by book).
|Starter Kit Available at Amazon|
Includes Book, (4) Wristbands, Poster & Magnet
In addition to the picture book, which is filled with ten easy-to-follow steps to help children start doing their part now, the starter kit also comes with a cute refrigerator magnet of Jimmy (an easy reminder for the kids because you know they're going in the 'fridge), a poster, and four wristbands.
|Little man started T-Ball last week, and you can see his wristband here|
(on the right side, woohoo!) when we went to shop for mitts.
|On the 'oops' side.|
A gentle reminder that he left the water running a little bit after he washed his hands.
|When we got to Day 3 of not moving the wristband (the goal), we celebrated with ice cream at the park.|
Ice cream of course, is optional. ;)
|The pages on the left side of the book offer an age-appropriate way|
for children to do their part.
|The right side of the book offers a reason why the tip is important,|
and is accompanied by a picture.
Recommended for ages 6+.
