10 Earth Day Activities & Free Earth Day Coloring and Activity Book Printable

Earth Day is a day to celebrate our planet and all it does for us! There are many different ways to celebrate, but here are 10 Earth Day Activities  ideas to get you started. 

 

1. Plant a garden

What better way to show your love for the earth than by growing something yourself? Help your kids plant a few flowers or vegetables in pots or in the ground, and watch them grow over the course of the year.

 

2. Take your kids on a nature walk

Head to a nearby park or nature preserve and explore the world around you! See how many different types of plants and animals your kids can find, and teach them about the importance of taking care of our earth.

 

3. Make a bird feeder 

Make your own bird feeder with some recycled materials and help your kids learn about the different types of birds that live near you. You can even hang it up in your yard and watch the birds visit all year long!

 

4. Clean up your neighborhood

Get the whole family involved in a community clean-up day! Pick up trash in your neighborhood or local park, and help make the earth a little bit cleaner.

 

5. Watch  Fun educational videos online.

There are tons of great earth day-themed videos out there that can teach your kids about taking care of the earth. Watch a few together and then discuss what they’ve learned.

 

6. Teach kids to recycle

One of the most important things we can do for the earth is recycle. Show your kids how to sort recyclable materials and where to put them, and explain why recycling is so important.
 

7. Learn how to compost

Composting is a great way to reduce waste and help your garden grow! Teach your kids how to compost, and let them help you add food scraps and other organic materials to your compost bin.

 

8. Upcycle plastic and metal bottles

Instead of throwing away those old plastic and metal bottles, upcycle them into something new! There are tons of fun crafts you can make with recycling materials. Your kids will love getting creative and making earth-friendly art.

 

9. Make tasty dirt cup treats

What kid doesn’t love dirt cups? Make these tasty treats with chocolate pudding, Oreos, and gummy worms. Not only are they delicious, but they’re also a great way to teach kids about earthworms and how important they are for our planet.

 

And finally, don't forget to have fun!
