How well-kept are playgrounds in your neighborhood or school? Encourage other kids and adults to help erase playground clutter.
With an adult accompanying your class during recess, survey the playground at your school (or go with a parent to a playground in your neighborhood). What kinds of clutter do you see? Who is responsible for the playground?
In small groups, develop plans to help keep the playground clean and safe. On white paper, use Crayola® Erasable Colored Pencils to make a list of recommendations. If you need to correct spellings, just erase. Check with the people responsible for the playground to make decisions about how you will proceed.
Then put your plans into action. One part of your plan might be to publicize a Campaign for Clean Playgrounds. You might want to make posters that encourage people to help. Use Crayola Markers and Crayola Twistables on white paper to draw beautiful playgrounds.
Write action words, such as "Pick up your trash."
Make your poster colorful by adding a bold border so it will be noticed wherever you hang it. Send a message to your classmates and community that safe playgrounds are important!
