Setting up a few Earth Day activities for your kids is much easier that you think and I am here to help you through with some our the easy ideas I did with my three kids as well as a few other really fun and easy ideas from some amazing bloggers.

What to Talk About?

Earth Day is all about showing our big beautiful planet a little love. Along with of course highlighting environmental consciousness and environmental concerns to the forefront. What does this mean with young kids? It’s about instilling a love for nature and all that it has to offer in your child. Here are some questions you can ask children to help get them thinking about the environment and our planet:

  • What is the your favourite thing about Earth?
  • Name one thing that goes in the garbage?
  • What’s one thing that goes in the recycling?
  • Can you name one thing that belong in nature? One thing that doesn’t?
  • What one place would you like to visit on Earth?
  • Can you name the colours of the planet earth from space?
  • What colour is the recycling symbol?
