Quick ideas for celebrating Earth Day with your children

22 Apr



  • Plant a tree
  • Go for a bike ride or a long walk (leave the car behind)
  • Hold a nature “scavenger hunt” (send the kids out into the garden or park in teams to collect – or spot – various items on a list you provide)
  • Talk about saving water when brushing teeth and saving energy by turning off the lights when you leave a room
  • Bake your favorite cookie recipe and let the kids decorate with icing to look like the planet earth
  • Gather family and friends together and combine a picnic or other excursion with a litter clean-up
  • Set up a recycling centre in your home or school
  • Look through your shelves and find some books to give away via www.bookcrossing.com or your local charity shop or library
