Activities - 23 May 2023
Bubbles not Balloons is a campaign initiative created by Zoos Victoria to spread awareness of the harmful and devastating impacts of releasing balloons into the environment on our Australian wildlife. The Bubbles not Balloons initiative will be held on Monday, 5 June 2023, coinciding with the World Environment Day. This year’s World Environment Day theme is ‘solutions to plastic pollution’.
The Camp Australia OSHC services, as well as a dedicated Base Camp Day in Rocketeers (Mission X) holiday program, will support the initiative by educating children about plastic pollution and the importance of protecting our wildlife and environment by reducing single-use plastic and other harmful waste.
Solutions to Plastic Pollution - have fun with bubbles at home with our ideas below:
Rainbow Bubble Snakes
2 tablespoons sugar
4 tablespoons water
1 tablespoon ego friendly dishwashing liquid.
Dissolve sugar in water and then add detergent to create mix.
The above activities will not only keep children entertained, but also educate them on plastic pollution and what they can do to help this World Environment Day. Bubbles not Balloons is a fun way to get them involved so give it a go and take these steps towards a better environmental future for us and our wildlife here in Australia.
