Although April isn't known for its holidays, there is one celebration that falls towards the end of the month: Earth Day. Though many people don't choose to throw a huge celebration for the impactful day, this was one of the most anticipated days of the year during my time as a Girl Scout leader. Children love the chance to be outside, appreciate nature, and take on some fun Earth Day activities for kids. And some of these activities may even get adults excited too.
Earth Day, which lands on April 22, is an annual event founded in 1970. On this day, people worldwide demonstrate their support for environmental protection and challenge one another to get involved in any way possible. Whether you like to do things outside or like to stay inside, there are plenty of activities for you to get involved that you sometimes do on a daily basis. What's even better, if you have kids, is finding things for them to do that shed light on the importance of the day. If you're fresh out of ideas or don't even know where to start, these nine fun Earth Day activities will help spark your creativity for the big day.
