Soda Bottle Rocket

Soda Bottle Rockets are a great way to have fun and recycle. You can go out and collect bottles that people have dropped, use them for these rockets, and then put them in the recycling bin. You could even make an event out of this! Invite friends and neighbors to clean up the neighborhood and then have bottle rocket contests before bringing everything to the recycling center.

Recycled Hummingbird Feeder

One of my favorite summer activities it to sit and watch hummingbirds zoom back and forth to the feeder. Hummingbird feeders can be quite expensive, but these DIY recycled ones are great. Not only are you keeping trash out of the landfills, but you are also helping to feed the birds.

These blessing bags are a great way to help out the homeless community this summer. You can fill them with summer items like sunscreen and bug spray and snacks. Make sure to ask your local shelter what they need most for summer.
