Earth Day is on April 22 every year and it’s a great time to show your children how to care for Mother Earth.
If your family doesn’t celebrate Earth Day, make this the year you start the tradition, and we bet you will make some amazing memories.
Here are five ways to show your children how to care for Mother Earth. Read on:
Plant a tree or garden
One of the best things you can do with your children to celebrate Earth Day is to plant a tree or even a small garden. If it’s too cold where you are, start some seeds indoors or visit a nursery or botanical garden to admire all the plants.
Planting a tree as a family is a great way to mark time, as well. You can take a picture of your littles in front of the tree each year and watch them all grow.
Clean up your neighborhood
If your neighborhood doesn’t have a spring clean-up day, now is the time to start one! Send some emails and invite folks to come out on Earth Day to pick up trash. It is a great way to meet new friends and take care of our planet, as trash can have negative impacts on wildlife and ecosystems.
No cars, no problem
If you can, make Earth Day a day when you walk or bike to places instead of taking a car. You’ll use less emissions and you just might find you look around and see lots of new things – and get some exercise!
Whether you walk or bike to the store, a park or a friend’s house, it’s a great way to honor Mother Earth.
At Everything Birth, we hope you enjoy celebrating Earth Day with your family!
