How to teach kids to care about Earth Day

Earth Day is a special day that is devoted to raising awareness and appreciation for our earth. It is celebrated on the 22nd of April and on this date people around the world think about ways to improve life on our planet. Kids that are involved in taking care of the planet may continue the tradition as they get older. As they observe and learn about nature, kids might develop a love and respect for nature.
Our planet is an incredible place filled with beautiful plants, fantastic animals and resources that allow us to enjoy our lives. This is exactly why it is important that we look after our planet. Let children be creative and come up with new, interesting ideas about ways to celebrate Earth Day. Activities such as planting trees, starting a  school garden or organizing an outside clean up are perfect ways to raise awareness and take action. It is crucial to create a sense of belonging to the wider natural world. Kids need to understand that they are part of a wider community and connection to nature is a vital thing to ensure that all kids are provided with opportunities to connect kids through animals and plants. 
Taking personal responsibility for our planet is important. A great way is by teaching your kids about the  3Rs Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. Today, there is an updated version called 4Rs, which refers to refuse, reduce, re-use and recycle. Let kids define the words and gain a practical understanding of how we together can reduce waste and pollution, re-use what we have, and use less precious resources. 

Investing in a green future is a great theme where kids can be creative while exploring ways that green ideas mean a prosperous future. Let your kids explore solutions to combat our greatest threats. Support kids to develop skills and optimism to lead the movement towards a greener future. This year, inspire kids to act and innovate.

Enjoy tinkering and innovating this Earth Day!
