Earth Day may be only one day a year, but, it can (and should) be practiced every day. You can’t be too young to learn about the earth and find ways to help. Your littlest ones can go on a nature walk or create a craft from the recycle bin. Older kids can take control and guide the family in ways to recycle, reduce, and reuse. They can implement a plan to reduce their water consumption or make a pledge to turn off the lights.
- Set up an at-home recycling station. Teach Me Mommy show you how.
- Learn about the world around you and go on a nature walk with How Wee Learn.
- Pick up litter around your neighborhood with My Nearest and Dearest.
