Celebrating Earth Day with kids teaches them to value our home planet. We like to think of Earth Day as a time to provide activities and education for kids that will support them in being earth friendly all year long. Earth Day focuses on way to make our planet a cleaner and better place. The great news is that you can start in your own backyard. Digging in the dirt and planting seeds is a great way to start for a young child. We have some really amazing fairy gardens that create the opportunity for just this. A favorite is the Tree Hollow Fairy Garden. It comes with a seed pack

The seeds grow fabulous plants.

The plants create a darling garden for the fairies.

We also have a Micro Dome Mini Fairy Garden that grows fantastic plants (maybe even plants that attract fairies)!

We love carrying products from companies that care about our environment, like Green Toys! They make the most darling Tea Set.

Young hosts can serve up a pot of tea while doing something really good for the earth. Like all Green Toys products, our Tea Set is made from eco-friendly materials, helping to reduce fossil fuel use and CO2 emissions, all in the name of Good Green Fun™! This 17-piece set includes tea pot and lid, sugar bowl with lid, creamer, 4 cups, 4 saucers, and 4 spoons! If you shop in our retail store, your items will go home in a recycle able paper bag. Here is a fun craft for Earth Day by Laura Kelly that you can make using one of our bags.

There is a free printable for Recycling in that blog post too!

So Yay! Yay for Earth Day Learning and Growing! Your Friends at Beyond the Blackboard Fun Fact: In celebration of Earth Day’s 50th anniversary coming up in 2020, the Earth Day Network has a goal of planting 7.8 billion trees toll mitigate climate change, reduce pollution, protect biodiversity, and support communities through food and energy production.
