Celebrate with Some Fun Earth Day Activities!
So were able to get outside to play and try some nature crafts with the kids last week? We’re starting to see sunshine and get outdoors some more. I always get to appreciating nature and our Earth in Spring. I’m sure it’s no coincidence that Earth Day is celebrated on April 22nd each year. Do you celebrate Earth Day with your kids? Here are some Earth Day activities to inspire you this year…
9 Easy – & Fun – Earth Day Activities
- Do Some Nature Crafting – Make sure to hop back to last week’s Kids Co-Op to find some nature crafts that would be fun to incorporate into your Earth Day celebration.
- Talk About Recycling & Make Recycled Crafts – Help the kids learn the concept and importance of recycling by crafting with recycled materials. Try making this cardboard pretend impact hammer, make a “trashy collage”, or doing one of these recycled art projects.
