Earth Day Ideas

Earth Day is coming up and we have a few book suggestions and activity ideas! With so much discussion about climate change, weather patterns, pollution, and what we can do to protect our earth, now is a great time to commit to sharing a productive Earth day with our children! We are planning a big trash-pick up in a neighborhood near the river with friends of all ages. Then, we plan to celebrate with a plastic-free party, seed planting, and mural drawing. How will you celebrate?

Our favorite books for Earth Day:

  1. Help to Help the Earth, by the Lorax, by Dr. Seuss
  2. Compost Stew: An A to Z Recipe for the Earth, by Mary Siddals
  3. Earth Day, Every Day, by Lisa Bullard
  4. I Can Save the Earth, by Alison Inches
  5. Why Should I Recycle, by Jen Green

Activity Ideas:

  1. Try to get through the whole day without using any plastic.
  2. Plant a tree or two.
  3. Get outside and find a place to pick up trash.
  4. Hug a tree.
  5. Create an Earth Day mural with pictures of things you love about the Earth.
  6. Donate your used clothes and toys to someone who can use them.
  7. Make apple peanut butter balls for the birds (dip the peanut butter in birdseed!)
