5 Activities To Do With Your Children On Earth Day! #EarthDay



What is Earth Day?

Earth Day was started in 1970 by a man named John Mc Connell from the United States. It was originally held on the annual celebration of the March Equinox and still is by many people. However, it is generally celebrated on April 22. Earth day is now celebrated worldwide.


Here are 5 ways you and your children can celebrate Earth Day! 


Make a 3D Earth Day Paper Craft: This is very easy and your kids will have a great time making it. Please click here to check out how to make this craft.

Plant some new flowers: Have your children pick out some pretty flowers for the front of your home or for the back yard. Help them plant the flowers and discuss with them how important flowers are to the Earth.

Have your children help clean up a park or playground: Grab some bags and head out to the nearest park or playground and help clean up! Make it a game and see how much recyclables and/or trash your children can help clean up. Then they can have some fun on the playground or run around at the park!

Walk or take your bike instead of the bus or car: Bike or walk with your children to school on Earth Day. Discuss on your walk or bike ride about the pollutants that come from vehicles and how they are bad for the environment.

Start a Home Compost: Leftovers and food waste can be used to provide nutrient rich fertilizer for a sustainable garden. Learn everything you need to know about composting with GEF’s Gardening Resources and build your own compost bin.
