Recycling Superheroes

Are you a Recycling Superhero? 

Can you help ERYC (Eric) and ERYCA (Erica) the bears to reduce, reuse, recycle whilst at home?

Look out for our Recycling Superhero posts with fun reuse and recycling activities to try at home together.

What is Recycling Superheroes?

Recycling Superheroes is a series of activities designed to support children with the four Rs of reduce, reuse, repair and recycle.

These activities are supported by our two superhero bears - ERYC (Eric) and ERYCA (Erica) - and have been produced to support recycling at home.

They are designed to be fun and interesting and will hopefully use items you already have or use at home.

What is Mission 3 for Recycling Superheroes?

Recycling Superheroes we call on you again!

Can Superheroes also be Superartists?? We think they can!

We need you to look for flowers, twigs, pebbles, leaves in the garden (or on your daily exercise walks if you have none of these in your garden/do not have a garden) and then make sculptures or art designs out of them!

Once you’ve taken photos for memories, everything apart from the stones/pebbles can be placed loose into the brown bin for composting.

Artwork without the need for any supplies!

Let us see your designs via our social media pages:·
