Earth Day is April 22nd, how are you planning to celebrate this year? Some of the ways we are celebrating Earth Day is by making fun crafts like this coffee filter Earth, taking a trip to a local recycling center, volunteering to picking up litter in our local park and going to watch the newest Disney Nature film, Monkey Kingdom (which also included a craft project and free journal page).

If you need some more ideas to celebrate check out these 10 Earth Day freebies for kids:
  1. Earth Day Sort - Help kids learn the difference between reducing, reusing, and recycling!
  2. Happy Earth Day Writing Activity - Kids of all ages can reflect on ways their family, school, and themselves can help keep the Earth healthy. Also encourages handwriting practice!
