Get Outside for an Earth Day Activity
If the weather permits I urge you to go outside and enjoy this beautiful world today. There are so many things we rush past or fail to notice and if we slow down, and look at it through our kid’s eyes, we’ll learn something and so will they. So, for today’s Earth Day activity, I want to show my son why we want and need to save our environment by appreciating what we have.
It’s amazing when you introduce a simple tool like a magnifying glass how outside time changes.
And we looked at flowers
Finally, if you want you can make a small notebook for your child to record or draw what they saw on their nature walk. However, I chose to skip that and spend the time talking about it with my son over a picnic lunch. Each time he told me what he found he’d jump up to show me exactly where in our backyard he found it.
