Previous Activities

Joanne joined the Bathgate Brownies and Rainbows for some fun Reduce, Reuse, Recycle activities. The recycling bean bag game was a firm favourite and everyone enjoyed reusing newspaper to make paper pots to plant seeds. The food waste games encouraged everyone to think about the food they throw out at home and 'goodie bags' containing recycled products were given to every Brownie and Rainbow.
