Happy Friday and happy Earth Day! Back in 1970, the first Earth Day brought 20 million people across the United States together to promote environmental awareness.
I think it's never too early to care about the planet and preschool is a great time to introduce basic Earth-friendly concepts. Kids have such a curiosity for the world around them so any hands on learning makes a big impact. Whether you have your child help you separate the recycling or you talk about why you keep the family dog on a leash in an environmentally sensitive area, I think parents can talk about ways to keep our planet healthy without being heavy-handed or going over little ones' heads.
What are things you do with your children to make every day Earth Day?
