Earth Day is a pretty important day, but we can’t expect our kids to understand the importance of Earth Day unless we teach them about it. That can be done through reading books, volunteering, or even just simple discussion and explaining. Another way to teach about Earth Day is to do some fun hands-on arts and crafts! I’m very excited about all of these Earth Day Activities for Kids from kid bloggers all over the net!
I teach about Earth Day as a special day where we take some time to think about changes we can make in our daily lives that would be better for the Earth, or ways that we can be active in making the world a cleaner place, and protecting its beauty.
We can teach our preschoolers all about the 3 R’s: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and going into a little bit of depth about what those words mean. You can even let your preschooler listen to Jack Johnson’s song: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.
