Frankie the Fox: mask making activity for 3-7 year olds to support campaign to protect environment

Postby Community Editor » Thu Jan 28, 2021 11:10 am

Children aged 3-7 are encouraged to take part in activities at home, to learn all about litter and recycling, as part of the Wandsworth Council’s MyWandsworth campaign.

In this week’s activity, young people are encouraged to learn all about Frankie the Fox and make their own mask courtesy of Earth Cubs a free educational platform created by a local resident.
Earth Cubs provides a range of activities for 3-year-olds right up to 7-year-old.

Parents and teachers can access free resources, downloadable activities and an app to inspire young people to learn all about our environment.

Local resident and father of two small children, Toby Hunt, setup Earth Cubs as he has long believed there is a need for fun and creative resources which inspire children to learn more about the world they live in and support the UN’s Global Goals.

Toby said: “I wanted to find a way to build excitement around sustainability and the environment. Our beautiful planet has so many incredible environments, all facing different issues. Earth Cubs was created to approach these issues in a positive way, empower children to make a difference and have fun at the same time!”

For children, an interactive mobile game encourages creativity, numeracy and literacy. They get to meet fascinating characters like Antonio the Anteater in the rainforest or Nigel the Nervous Narwhal in the Arctic.

For parents, simple to use home learning packs cover a wide-range of environments, activities and hints on making life more sustainable.

For teachers, Earth Cubs lesson plan resources all fully aligned to EYFS and KS1 curriculum. Their complete lesson plans include: guided teaching steps, activities, outdoor learning ideas - all focused on the environment and sustainability.

Parents and teachers can access free resources, downloadable activities and an app to inspire young people to learn all about our environment.

Councillor Steffi Sutters, Cabinet Member for Community Services and Open Spaces, said:
“Earth Cubs is a great way to bring messages around litter and recycling to a younger audience, inspiring the next generation to learn about and take care of their local area while in lockdown.

“The activities are fun, free and give Wandsworth’s children, parents and teachers one simple way to help spread the word about what kids can do to protect the environment.”

Download Earth Cubs App for free via Apple and Android App stores.
