Earth Day Activities For Kids

With Earth Day coming up on Sunday, April 22, parents and early childhood educators should share their Earth Day cheer with their kids.

What is Earth Day?
Earth Day is a special day that occurs annually on April 22, on which 175 countries around the world hold events to increase awareness and appreciation of the Earth and nature. This year marks the 42nd Anniversary of Earth Day, which was started in 1970.

How Can You Get Involved in Earth Day?
There are many ways to get involved with Earth Day—the Earth Day Network has planned a variety of different functions throughout the world in which you can register.

What are some Earth Day Activities for Kids?
Help the earth and enjoy earth day with the kids by making tin can herb pots. By recycling a tin can, and planting an herb, you are creating new life and producing oxygen.

Also try making seeded paper bookmarks, an eggshell planter or terrarium.
