Earth Day is a great opportunity to teach your kids the values of reduce, reuse, and recycle! The three R’s can translate to various do-good activities throughout the day from turning off the faucet while brushing your teeth or saving scrap paper for another purpose. To further inspire you and your family, we’ve round-up three creative inspirational activities.
Earth Day Walk
Take a walk and notice the things you are truly thankful for: trees, water, animals, sunshine, puddles. When you get home, draw a picture or make a poster about what inspired your gratitude.
Find a new use for an old item
While we tend to stick with cardboard based recycling projects, the internet is abuzz with Earth Day related STEAM projects today. Hop over to our Pinterest page to see what we’ve been collecting.
Ask you children to take a thoughtful look their toys, books + clothes. Are they ready to pass them along to another child? Arrange a swap with a friend, or donate to a local organization. HOPE, John Graham Housing + Services and Bonnie’s Book Foundation all provide services for local Addison County families, so you’ll be supporting local children and families. Get in on the action yourselves, Round Robin is always in need of quality men’s clothing as well as house hold items and women’s clothing.
How will you and your family celebrate Earth Day?
