Earth Day is a special day when we all come together to celebrate our planet. There are so many things to love about Earth, from the stunning landscapes and creatures that inhabit it, to the resources that allow us to thrive. Today, and every day, we should go for a walk outside, smell the flowers, and pick up trash on our walk to show our appreciation to Mother Earth.
Ways to Celebrate Earth Every Day
Here are some activities you and your kid can do today and every day to celebrate Earth:
bike instead of driving your car
plant a flower
Get a plant for inside your home
Turn off the water when you are brushing your teeth
Take shorter showers
Reuse plastic bags
Turn your vegetable and fruit leftovers into compost
Can you think of some other activities that you can do to help save the planet earth?
Earth Day Activity Pages
If you find yourself trapped inside today, I’ve collected a collection of free coloring pages and activity sheets for kids. Print them out and spend some quality time together while showing your love for our beautiful planet. You may also take these printables to your local park or any other green area in your community, set up a picnic blanket , and enjoy some time outside while you color and do the Earth Day activity pages.
All of the activity pages can be colored in because everything is in black and white. There are two mazes, two I-Spy activities, a page to write down how to help Earth, and lots of coloring pages.
These activity pages do not require much preparation. Simply print on copy paper, give your kid some crayon or color pencil, and let them have fun.
To save paper, print only what you need on both sides of the copy paper. Don’t forget to recycle these activity pages when you are done with them or turn them into your own handmade paper.
Here is a great video on how to do just that:
