The other day, I noticed that there was a goose family in the neighborhood next to ours with little goslings, and was excited to take the Bachsters there so we could see their fuzzy cuteness. How is goose-watching related to Earth Day, you might ask. I think that nature-related activities can only help get your kids excited about the environment and want to help protect it. So, off to watch the geese we went!
I always try to get the Bachsters some non-fiction books from the library, and was especially happy to find this book about what happens to our trash....and was even happier when I found DD reading it, and then asking if she can re-use by making some crafty things out of items in our recycling. Yes!
Speaking of recycling, we always have a pile of it to go into our local recycling bins. I don't mind doing the tiny bit of extra work to gather the recycling and drop it off. It's so easy to do & I always feel so happy & "earth-loving" after we drop off recycling.
I hope you had a great Earth Day last weekend. Have you been doing any Earth-friendly activities to celebrate?
