Shirts can be found here

Earth Day is Thursday and I am sharing how kids can help the planet this month in celebration of Earth Day on April 22nd. Here is a roundup of ways kids can get involved, help the planet, celebrate Earth Day with some fun crafts, movies or shows to watch, and great books to read all month long.  So come along and learn with us and help celebrate the beautiful place we live.

Make a cute Mickey Mouse themed Earth Day garland. Watch the video here.

Plant an easy succulent and decorate the pot.  The kids did Mickey Mouse heads on their pots.

Make Earth Day Dirt Cups!  Believe me they will be a hit!  All you need is chocolate pudding, Oreos crushed up, and gummy worms.  Watch the video here.

We love reading.  I found some great books about Earth Day and I wanted to share them with you:

Lobstah Gahden - This delightfully punny story about ocean life, conservation, and cooperation is perfect for sparking conversations in the classroom and at home.

Climate Change for Babies - Teach toddlers about current events with this colorfully simple explanation of the science behind climate change. The perfect gift for environmentally conscious kids and families!

A Dolphin’s Wish - Dive under the sea with a family of dolphins and discover the dangers of plastic pollution.

Trees Make Perfect Pets - An endearing and environmentally friendly story about a girl's unlikely best friend...a tree!

What Does It Mean to Be Green? - Featuring all new artwork and updated facts and backmatter, this brand-new edition of What Does It Mean to Be Green? explores all the ways that children can help protect the Earth and its precious resources!

The Girl Who Spoke to the Moon - A sweet bedtime story that will inspire children to protect the Earth and encourage others to do the same.

Fancy Nancy Everyday Is Earth Day - Learning to respect the environment is no small task, especially if you want to celebrate Earth Day every day of the week! Luckily, Nancy is on hand to make sure Mom, Dad, and her little sister do their part in being green—even if she has to keep reminding them. Nancy knows that she's helping her family do something very important, but will she take her enthusiasm for the environment a step too far?
