With operation clean neighborhood, the neighborhood will never look so good! This neighborhood clean-up is an easy volunteer activity that can help others catch the fever.

What You'll Need:

  • A few friends
  • Work gloves
  • Trash bags
  • Broom
  • Dustpan

How to Do Operation Clean Neighborhood:

Sometimes all it takes is one hero to start a wave of participation. You can be that hero by organizing a group of young volunteers to do a little neighborhood cleanup.

Ask friends if they care about the neighborhood they call home. If, like most kids, they answer "yes," tell them it's time to turn their good thoughts into good deeds.

Get permission from friends and neighbors before you begin, then grab some work gloves and a big trash bag and dig in.

Is there a broken-down fence scattered across the alley? Take the time to gather it up and toss it in the trash. Did somebody break glass bottles all over the street? Grab a broom and a dustpan and sweep that mess into the trash.

You'll feel like a hero and your streets will reflect how much you care.

Now that the neighborhood is clean, it's time to clean up a stream in the next easy kids' activity.
