In "Moral Tales," a Tapestry of Faith program
Tell the children that even when there are plenty of trash bins and recycling bins around, people often appreciate reminders to help, not harm, the Earth by properly getting rid of their trash. Say:
Today we are going to make some posters to help people keep the balance, here at our congregation.
If a congregational leader is joining you to talk about recycling, introduce that person now and invite him/her to make a short presentation about how the recycling program came about at your Unitarian Universalist congregation and why it is an important endeavor for the Earth and for your congregation (a question the children may be able to answer, if you pose it to them).
If you have planned a small tour, gather the children and take them to the locations in your congregation that you have scouted. Then return to your meeting space to make posters.
Allow children to work in pairs on posters that require a lot of writing. Some participants like to lavish attention on bold arrows that you can later position around the building so they are pointing toward trash or recycling bins.
