Abstract: We live in a time of progressive interest in technologies that give us unlimited opportunities to communicate with each other, but also that separate us from the world. A time of virtual reality and social isolation, in which the child is further and further away from his natural environment for development – nature. That is why today, more than ever, it is necessary to show the little discoverer the world as it really is and to teach him how to preserve and preserve it from an early age.Nature remains the greatest and wisest teacher. She can be an example not only for the development of life, but also for inspiration for work and creativity. And this is part of our mission as teachers – to encourage creativity in children and to begin systematic and purposeful work to form an ecological culture, laying the foundations of environmental education in kindergarten. Guided by the idea that nature conservation is a moral duty of each of us, I decided to show the children that they are the little heroes today, who tomorrow will take a big step towards a cleaner and more beautiful world. How did this happen? It is through various cognitive situations and activities that in an interesting and fun way reveal the relationship „man-nature“, we set the stage in the preservation of our common home. Thus, through the „new look“ at waste, we have shown that recycling is a step towards change.
Keywords: ecological education, recycling, creativity, nature.
