The purpose of Earth Day is to not only celebrate the planet we live on but also to examine our living habits to determine if we are living Earth-friendly lives. Much of our day-to-day life is harmful to the environment, and many kids are surprised at what changes they can make to live a more Earth-friendly lifestyle. Work these Earth Day activities for kids into your Earth Day studies this year and introduce kids to what the Earth looks like, how to care for the Earth, recycling, using resources wisely, and how to maximize our benefit on the Earth. Kids will be delighted to learn about the Earth with these fun projects!
*Pair with our Spring Centers and Activities for Pre-K & Kindergarten!
