Earth Day is coming up this Friday, and it is the perfect opportunity to do activities outside with the kids. Here are a few fun ways you can give back to Mother Earth.
Pick up a local park. This is a great way to give back to the community and to teach your children about the importance of keeping the environment clean. Put together a team of neighbors, grab some trash bags, and head to a nearby park for some clean up. Be sure to wear gloves and appropriate clothing.
Plant a tree in your yard. This is a great way to start the conversation about the importance of trees and plants to the environment. Teach your kids about taking care of the things that are so important to our earth. Plus, watching the tree grow over the years will be a great way to remember this time spent together.
Start a compost bin. Instead of throwing away kitchen scraps, collect them to help grow the plants in your garden. These kitchen scraps contain nutrients that will help your vegetables, herbs and flowers grow faster.
These activities are fun for the whole family and will make our earth a better, cleaner place. Check out this article for more ideas to make this Earth Day the best one yet!
