When it comes to helping our planet, chances are you are already recycling, composting, ridding your house of paper towels and plates, etc. But what else can we do? We can ask for help – from our kids.
From one-time projects to ongoing efforts, there are many ways to inspire and enlighten kids about making our world a cleaner, healthier, happier, and safer place. Earth Day happens once a year, but you can do these any day!
Yep…you heard right. Kids care more about the environment when they have a relationship with the great outdoors. Help them to explore your local parks, woods, beaches, mountains, and more by taking them on hikes designed to introduce them to the animals and plants in your area — and be sure to snap a lot of pics!
- Farmers Markets
Words like “sustainable” and “local” might not mean much to your kids in the abstract, but a trip to the farmers’ market can show them just how much different (and better) organically grown produce from small farms can be. If possible, introduce your children to some of the vendors and ask questions about how and why they grow food the way they do — and what it means for the planet!
