Earth Day is April 22nd and we make it a point to make this day very special. Aside from regular things, we do to try and keep our Earth lovely by being Eco-friendly.We try to learn new things to do each year.
It’s important to celebrate Earth day to my family because as I mentioned before, my grandfathers were field workers and my grandmother believed in herbal remedies. They taught us as kids that we have to love our Earth to receive it’s wonderful gifts—fruits, vegetables, and herbs. It’s important to show love to the wonderful planet we call home!
This year the kids understand a little more about the importance of conserving energy and recycling but I feel they need to know ways to love our Earth outdoors too. We’ve made it our goal for Earth Day this year to go outdoors more!
We encourage you to love our Earth! Here are 5 ways to celebrate EARTH day with your kids!
