Earth Day Ideas and Events!

Picture I took on a beautiful day!

Hello everyone! Tomorrow is Earth day and if you would like to attend an event or volunteer I have found the best website for locating the ones closest to you! Some have past but there are a lot coming up this week. There is also a search if you would like to volunteer just put in your zip code and they will give you the closest places to volunteer.

A great idea for teaching your kids about Earth Day is sitting down and watching the movie WALL-E with them it is a great way to show them what Earth would be if everyone littered and didn't care to keep it clean. It's a great one for Earth day!

You can check out YouTube with your kids to find the old Classic Captain Planet one of my all time personal favorites! My sister and I would watch this every Saturday or Sunday morning!

It's a great time to teach your kids how to do their part to keep our world in tip top shape and why it is important!
