Earth Day Activities for Kids
Earth Day is the perfect time to teach children about conservation, how to be eco-friendly and sustainable living. How the things we do impact the earth. I put together a list of meaningful Earth Day activities you can do together with your family, class, or school to help children develop an understanding of what it means to care for our environment and planet. If you are homeschooling, you could work one or all of these earth day activities into your Earth Day unit study. These activities are for kids of all ages.
Remember, these Earth Day activities can be done any time of the year and not just on April 22. I hope you find some inspirational ideas in the list below!
