Wordless Wednesday — Earth Day Activities With Kids

by Dagmar Bleasdale on April 17, 2012

Earth Day is this Sunday, May 22!

Our town was encouraging people to help clean our roads. The library was giving out trash bags and organized their pickup. I definitely wanted to be part of this effort and make it a fun and educational event with Landon.

So a few days ago, Landon and I and a couple of my friends with their girls picked up trash alongside one of our local roads.

We collected five bags of trash in just half an hour! I can’t imagine just chucking something out of my car window… And my son will neither.

Are you going to do something special in honor of Earth Day? Tell me about other Earth Day activities with kids!

Das ist eine super Idee! Wir haben das auch gerade mit unserer Gemeinde in Wiesbaden gemacht.

Lasst es Euch gut gehen!

Alles Liebe,

That’s a great idea! Something I’d like to do with my son once he’s old enough!

I used to participate in the Earth Day beach clean up in my area, but I haven’t in awhile. I’ll look into what my community has to offer this year. I think my toddler is a great age now.

Every year I organize a neighborhood beach clean up. We live right on the water, so it helps to keep the land we love and enjoy, clean while teaching the children about littering, protecting our wild/sea life and about working together as a community.

That’s wonderful, Dagmar! It’s so great to get Landon involved in caring for our planet early on. :)
