Happy Earth Day! We spent the morning reading some of our favorite Earth loving books. If you haven't read any of these books with your littles I highly recommend them. They are sweet and simple stories about why it is so important to care for our Earth and that each little effort really can have a big impact. It's so important for kids to realize that they truly are big enough to make a difference in this great big world. Earth Day is the perfect opportunity for that and one of our favorite family "holidays". Especially for Kinsley who I have no doubt will grow up impacting her world in a very big way.
We also talked about some of their favorite ways to help protect the Earth and everyone (and everything) living on it.
- Growing a garden
- Feeding the birds
- Recycling everything
- Cleaning up trash that people leave everywhere
- Making sure good bugs have homes
- Helping the birds make their nests
- Not wasting too much electricity
- Don't ever waste water
Making houses for the bugs to live in, finding worms for our garden, and just enjoying spending time out in mother nature...seems like the perfect way to spend the day indeed.
