Well I didn't have time to throughly prepare for it this year (getting book ahead of time from the library....prep elaborate DIY projects, etc.) So here are some fun Earth Day activities and songs to get you in the spirit!
What is Earth Day?
It's Earth's Birthday!!
Yep, thats all that I got from my research.
How am I celebrating Earth Day with my little ones?
So I am throwing Earth a birthday party!!
Then we are going to break out the old shovel and do some gardening! I picked up $1 plastic green houses at target last week, complete with basil seeds already included in the box.
Then we will sing some Earth Day songs (listed below). Color some Earth Day pictures. Read some
Earth Day Songs
REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE - words that we all know.
We have to save our planet so we can live and grow.
We might only be children but we will try, you'll see
And we can save this planet, it starts with you and me!
RECYCLE (Sing to the tune of Twinle, Twinkle, Little Star)
We recycle what we use,
sepearte things and you should too!
Glass and paper, plastic and tin
Go in your recycling bin!
We must start now, we can't wait,
Quick or it will be too late!
