Happy Earth Day! Here at Kidsshoes.com, we excited for earth day because that means contributing to saving the planet we live on. Although we love to recycle and eliminate our waste as much as possible every day, we know not everyone does, and on Earth Day it’s important for us to encourage saving the planet. We’ve come up with a few activities that are so easy, even your kids can learn the importance of saving Earth.
Create a nature collage
Whether they use shells, leaves or branches, all you need is glue and paper for your little ones to make some beautiful art using the world around them.
Make a decorated bird feeder
You can use a plastic cup and plate, a plastic bottle, a milk carton, or an old teapot without the top, to create a bird feeder. As long as there is a small enough space for them to either get at the food or food to continue to flow out easily, allow your kids to be as creative as they like.
Turn baby food jars into candles
Easily use some tissue paper, Mod Podge, and glitter to decorate the inside and outside of the glass. Then just throw in a tea light candle and you’re all set with your beautiful new candles that display their creativity.
Make tin can drums
Help eliminate the waste of buying a plastic drum set with all that extra packaging and pieces, by making your own drums!
And lastly, making a small gardening area for the kids to plant!
