Growing Up Green Bearwood: Toy Swap
Toy swaps are a great way both to bring people together and to remind everyone that what may be waste to one person may be happily reused by somebody else – meaning less useful stuff ending up in the bin.
Time & Location
18 Sept 2021, 11:00 – 13:00 GMT-7
St. Mary's Church Hall , St. Mary’s Church Hall, Bearwood, Smethwick B66 4BQ
Toy swaps are a great way both to bring people together and to remind everyone that what may be waste to one person may be happily reused by somebody else – meaning less useful stuff ending up in the bin. It also means less on your pocket, since it is estimated that in the UK the average spend per child on toys is £294 annually!
Join us for Growing Up Green Toy Swap where kids can swap up to 5 toys with other children.
Children can donate a toy they no longer need in exchange for picking another toy for free (those who arrive without any toys to swap will not be excluded from choosing one).
Toys will be divided into categories and subcategories and assigned a value sticker Red (£15+), Blue (£10 and under) and Green (£5 and under). Toys should be given in good condition and please clean toys before giving them and after receiving them with an antibacterial spray.
Toys can be dropped off before the event from 9am. Toys must be received by 10.45am on the day to be included in the swap.
Wanted! Children aged 7yrs+ and adults to help organise the swap please email Amy if you want to get involved.
💚 Growing Up Green' is a Children and Family Arts Festival that celebrates action on climate change as part of The Great Big Green Week. The festival will take place across Birmingham and the Black Country during the week of 18- 26 September 2021 and will give children an opportunity to be in relationship with nature, nurture their curiosity in everyday ecology and help signpost a way to being environmentally responsible in now and in the future.
