So now when I am chopping up some yummy fruit for my family I always have an extra bowl for the scraps....because we will be putting it to good use!!
I have reused a large yogurt container to gather small scraps during the day.
This has become a chore for my four year old. He runs out with me when the scrap bucket in the house gets full and dumps it into the pile. We then add a bit of dirt over top to cover it. I am truely hoping this is a way to help my kids see how we can care for the Earth God provided for us. It is another great way to teach responsibility to my kids. And he thinks he is having fun the whole time.
