Earth Day Tips For Families

Celebrating Earth Day is something we do each year, but it always includes fun activates. I hope I can inspire you to do the same with some Earth Day tips for families

  • Take time to learn about the Earth, its geography, the planet and where it aligns with other planets, what the earth looks like from space and more. You can find videos and games online. – Brain Pop series on the Earth (paid subscription needed)and AOL videos.
  • Recycle – Make recycling a habit. Find out all of the items you can recycle in your area. Check out more information on recycling.
  • Start a Garden – Grow vegetables, plants or flowers. Home Depot has a garden club and workshops for gardening projects. Many areas have garden clubs as well. Don’t forget about Urban gardens
  • Crafts for Earth Day – Crafts teach and are a lot of fun. Please upcycle instead of using new items. Some examples are making a bird house, wind chimes with shells, a watering can made of a milk jug, use cans, glass jars, paint cans and more for planters, etc.
  • Donate Clothing, Toys, etc. – Get three boxes and choosing items to keep, to give away as hand-me-downs or to donate. You can get the kids involved by going through their toys or tossing items into the boxes.
  • Shredding – Shred junk mail and old paperwork. Use the shredding paper for packing or mailing delicate items. There are other benefits to shredding too.
  • Book Donations – Donate old books to the public library, school library, or used book stores.
  • Use Paper Bags or bring your own Reusable Bag for Shopping.  You can also bring plastic bags to the store to add to their recycling boxes.
  • Have an Earth Day Party – Make healthy snacks in the shape of the Earth, trees, flowers or bugs. Use fruit, nuts, real fruit rollups and vegetables. Make upcycled crafts. Play outside.
