Our Favorite Earth Day Activities With Kids

Earth Day is tomorrow, can you believe it? We are definitely still in celebration mode from Easter, so we are planning a day of outdoor fun with the kids. Earth Day is a great time for us to talk about taking care of our planet, and appreciating the beauty of nature. The kids love to come up with new ways that we can make a difference in our home day-to-day. Last year we made a recycling chart, so the kids could help out with the recycling too. They also love a trip to the nursery to pick out new plants to plant in the garden. If you’re planning Earth Day activities tomorrow, check out some of our favorite ones that you can do as a family.
