By now, you've probably seen and heard about the negative effects of global warming, such as frequent severe weather disasters and melting glaciers. The idea of our changing planet may seem scary, but every person — even kids — can do their part to help out. And there's no better time than Earth Day to start. Although you should be thinking about protecting the environment all year long, there are some great ways you can celebrate Earth Day with your kids.
With a little creativity, you can begin to instill good habits in your young ones about eco-friendly living. Use this Earth Day as a time to celebrate and establish traditions that will have a lasting impact on the planet. Teach your children (and yourselves) about how food goes from the farm to the table, ways to save energy, conserve water, and reduce the amount of pollution. By taking action as a family, kids can feel like they are making a difference in their community and the world around them.
This Earth Day, round up the entire family and show our planet a little love. You can have lots of fun, while helping to create some amazing little global citizens who will grow up learning to appreciate the planet we call home.
