These Earth Day activities will get you started to make Earth Day every day in your home or school. Even young children can get involved and learn how to help our planet! I chose these Earth Day activities for their great hands-on learning opportunities.

The best part about Earth Day activities is using what you have. Reuse items in different ways. Play out of the recycling bin. Earth Day activities can be done any time not just during the month of April! Spring is a wonderful time to teach young kids about the planet.

What kinds of questions can you ask kids about Earth Day?
Asking questions without giving answers right away is a great way to see what kids already know, their thoughts and feelings about different ideas. What can you recycle? What can you do around the house to conserve energy? What do plants do for us and the Earth? Why shouldn’t we litter and what is littering? Why don’t we dump trash in the ocean? What can we make from old or recyclable items? I love some of the wonderful and thoughtful answers to these questions my preschool age son had while we enjoyed our Earth Day activities. The activities below are suitable for toddler through kinder.
