4 Ways to Celebrate Earth Day with Your Kids

Getting your kids involved in this year’s Earth Day celebration on April 22 is a great way to inspire and educate them about the importance of taking care of our planet. Earth Day is the largest civic observance in the world with more than 1 billion people participating in Earth Day activities each year.

There’s no better way to celebrate the event than spending time outdoors with your little ones. As you do so, encourage them to take a moment to admire the trees, flowers, grass, rocks, creeks, or any part of nature that’s all around them.

 

What are the Ways to Celebrate Earth Day with Your Kids?

Are you looking for great ideas on how you can meaningfully celebrate Earth Day with your kids? To get you ready for a day of fun and learning, we at Kids Car Donations would like to share with you these options:

  • Enjoy the great outdoors!

You can choose to take your kids to one of our country’s magnificent national parks to breathe in all the fresh air you can get as you feast your eyes on the breathtaking view. You can also go camping with your kids in your own backyard and do some stargazing at night.

  • Organize a cleanup day!

Grab those gloves and spend an afternoon picking up trash with your kids in their favorite park or around your neighborhood. Don’t forget to give your kids proper supervision!

  • Make a butterfly garden!

Did you know that pollinators such as butterflies and bees play very important roles in keeping our environment healthy? You can do a little bit of research to discover the types of butterflies that are native to your area. Encourage your kids to plant wildflowers and shrubs to attract these beautiful creatures in your yard.

  • Plant a tree! 

This activity never gets old, and we can all benefit much from trees. When they break winter winds and give us shade in the summer, they help reduce our consumption of energy. Aside from the fact that trees reduce erosion by stabilizing the soil, they also provide shelter for animals and reduce harmful greenhouse gases because they absorb carbon dioxide.

If you cultivate their love for nature, your kids will surely learn to appreciate the idea of living green and the positive impact that it makes on our environment. They’ll become passionate about protecting it. After all, it’s always a good idea to start them young.
