Green DIY Street Signs for Toy Cars
I have been feeling a little guilty lately. My all time most popular post is this one. In it I share a little DIY project on how to make traffic signs for toy cars with popsicle sticks, bottle caps, and a printable. I’m been feeling guilty contributing to so much pretend non essential driving. Just think about all of those pretend greenhouse gases. Well I am back to remedy this situation today with green signs! Ones that remind us conservation play is fun too!
So here with go, vroom, vroom!
What you’ll need…
card-stock, printer, popsicle sticks, water-bottle caps, glue stick, scissors, and a utility knife
- Print out this PDF: green signs for kids on card-stock
- Cut out the signs
- Glue signs to popsicle sticks
- Cut slots on the bottle caps (this is the hard part, PLEASE be careful!)
- Insert popsicle stick signs into the bottle cap stands
- Then it’s playtime!
Here’s some reasons why these signs are good for your pretend environment…
- Traveling at speeds under 50 MPH increases your fuel efficiency dramatically.
- Riding your bike uses no gas at all plus it’s good for you!
- Taking advantage of the bus reduces the number of vehicles on the road as does carpooling.
- Road salt is bad for plants and animals.
- Reminders to recycle cant hurt.
- Car fumes are bad for environment and us so turn off your car if your not moving.
- Remember we share the earth with lots of other creatures.
- Electric vehicles use less gas and have the potential to use renewable, non greenhouse gas producing energy.
