Plastic Free July

         Beeswax wraps                                                                  

 To encourage and support our whānau in the Moana room (infant and toddlers area) we (kaiako and tamariki) made beeswax wraps to hand out to our whānau. We made these for our whānau with the hope they would use as an alternative to glad wrap. First we had to grate the wax into pellets, then we melted the wax and added our cotton material. When we had fully coated our material we then hung our wraps to dry:)
Beau is enjoying the hands-on experience and he is being very careful when using the grater. Tino pai Beau!

We have done this process with different groups of tamariki throughout the week so everyone got to experience and participate in learning of ways to reduce our plastic use, however small that may be.

  1. Great stuff Opunake! Love the initiatives & loving the fact that you are teaching such sustainable practices at an early age. I know this is just a fraction of the great work you do. Love seeing it :-)
