Every Day is Earth Day and today is the annual event! What better way to celebrate than getting outdoors, appreciating Nature, and taking positive actions. A great book that shares ideas of easy projects for kids with adult supervision is found in the 2015 book by Isabel Thomas:
Our eight-year old's favorite activities include making shopping bags out of old tee shirts, planting dishes of water to collect rain for birds, setting up a blind to view birds, and making meatless Eco-Burgers. He also wants to make the Action Grabber using a coat hanger, pole, tape, and rubber bands to pick up trash. There are many other ideas for making bird houses, a Batty Box, and wrapping birthday presents.
