The earth is what we all have in common.

— Wendell Berry

Every year in April I look forward to earth day events!In fact, I look forward to all of the gardening projects with the children at my Child Care Center and so much more.

Earth Day is an annual day on which events are held worldwide to demonstrate support for environmental protection and Earth Day is observed on April 22nd each year.

Also, Earth day is a great day to teach young children how to be earth friendly with fun enriching activities. Need some Earth Day ideas? Check out the Activities below:

Take off Shoes! If you have a grassy area in your yard or on your playground; encourage the children to take off their shoes and feel the grass in between their toes.

Look up at the Sky!Encourage the children to lay down in a grassy area and look up at the sky. be sure to ask the children the following question; “How does that make you feel?”

Turn Our the Lights! On Earth Day, open the blinds and turn off the lights. This is a great way to save energy!

Clean-up Your Neighborhood! Consider taking the older children on a walk around your home or your center to pick-up trash in the neighborhood. * Be sure to carry business cards with you. On the back of the card write the words, ” We are an earth Friendly Child Care program.”

5 Ways To Green Your Kids by Myra Abdus-Saboor

According to the Owner and Director of Teach Children Early Learning Center, “The warm weather is here and the kids are excited about all the fun activities they can during the summer. Your pocket is saying: Humm!

Think about all of the items you purchase regularly, that can be reused, recycled, save your family money, keep your kids happy and busy during the summer months.
Many families spend thousands of dollars on toys and activities that can be made simply and inexpensively. With just a few supplies on hand and for purchase at your local discount stores, you can create and make your own toys, games and fun summer activities”
