Teaching benefits of recycling through craft making

PUTATAN: Creating recycled crafts with preschoolers is not only fun, but also teaches kids about the benefits of recycling.

In conjunction with the Chinese New Year Celebration, Tadika Hwa Shiong Putatan held competitions to showcase the pupils’ creativity in making handcrafted red lanterns, dragon and lion heads from recycled material.

And of course, the competitions were assigned for the pupils and their parents to complete together.

By doing this, parents get to spend quality time bonding with their children and at the same time, create lifelong memories to cherish while they were making the craftworks together.

Moreover, the kids learned the importance of recycling, not only from their teachers but also parents.

Kudos to Tadika Hwa Shiong Putatan for reinforcing this message, helping everyone to realise that they too can make a difference in the community – that we care about our environment.
