One of my favourite days of the entire year is Earth Day and I love coming up with fun Earth Day activities for kids to make and enjoy. I love that we take a day to be grateful for our beautiful planet.
Ever since I was a teenager, I have found various ways to honour our planet. When my children were born I wanted them to appreciate and celebrate Earth too. So, I have come up with fun Earth Day activities, Earth Day recipes and Earth Day crafts that kids of all ages really enjoy.
Connecting our children with the planet is the absolute best way to protect our planet for generations to come.
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful , committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.
