Below you’ll find a list of Earth Day activities you can do with your kids while you’re at home. Each idea is an excellent way to encourage your kids to learn new ways to protect Earth and learn more about nature as you navigate this new lifestyle of staying at home and still helping the environment.
Earth Day Activities
Take a Walk
Even though most states are under a shelter in place or stay at home order, many states are allowing their citizens to take a walk. Use this time to gather up some bags, gloves, and pokers to enjoy a walk while you pick up litter found in the woods, the side of the road, or other public areas during your walk.
This is a great way to get exercise, sunshine, and help the earth.
Now is an excellent time to start your garden. You can still purchase seeds online or at a local store, some stores have shut down the non-essential aisles, but are happy to get some seeds together if you call ahead. Plant your indoor herb garden or outdoor garden seeds now so that you can transplant them when your region says it’s okay to plant your seeds in an outdoor garden.
Plus, planting trees, flowers, fruits, and vegetables help your children and the planet too.
I’ve seen an influx in upcycled crafts for kids these days. There are many ways you can turn old k-cups, mason jars, and water jugs into upcycled crafts. Create some of the best crafts for kids using recyclable materials to enjoy Earth Day at home. Start saving your supplies or go ahead and rummage through your recycling bin before Earth Day.
Now is an excellent time to see what type of materials you have around the house that can be transformed into bird feeders. Make your own simple homemade bird feeders to place in your backyard. This is a fun way to encourage your backyard birds to stay active and healthy during the year.
It also provides many great lessons for your children.
You can easily go through your recycle bins to find old trash that can be used for an Earth Day Project around your home. Since you’re already staying at home, now is the time to use this year’s Earth Day as a chance to create and fix things around the home that will save water, energy, and our planet.
