Hip Hip Hooray, it's Earth Day!

While I'm Waiting...5 fun and easy ways to celebrate Earth Day!
Every April 22nd, people all over the world come together to demonstrate support for environmental issues.  According to the Earth Day Network the movement began forty six years ago and continues to inspire, challenge ideas, ignite passion and motivate people to action.

I love that Earth Day falls on a Friday this year because that means the kids and I can do a few fun activities over the weekend to celebrate!  Here are 5 fun and easy ways you and your family can celebrate Earth Day! 

Do something - anything!
I LOVE this Dr. Seuss inspired coloring page from Dawn Nicole Designs!

Ever wonder what to do with all those broken crayons you have laying around?  Here's a quick tutorial on how to make Earth Day crayons - which would be perfect to use with your coloring pages! ;)

Look around!
It's not a celebration around here unless there's a scavenger hunt!!!

Plant Something!
I LOVE to craft with the kids but I have to be perfectly honest.  Usually the first thought that runs through my head is, "where are we going to put this?!"  I can say that I would definitely love these fun little cans anywhere in our house!  I've been wanting to grab a couple of succulents and these tin can planters would be PERFECT!

Have fun!
Turn Earth Day into a movie night!  Wall-E, The Lorax, or any Disneynature film would be the perfect combo with Earth Day popcorn!

Althought Earth Day is no joking matter,  your kids will surely love these jokes!  Here's just one example!

How can you tell the ocean is friendly?
It waves.

  1. Earth day popcorn and a movie....I'm there. Great ideas.

    1. Thanks, friend! We had all the stuff to make the popcorn but never got around to doing it! Maybe this week! :)

  2. I love all these ideas, but the popcorn is the best! Thanks for sharing, I'll be adding this to my counseling board on Pinterest.

    1. Thanks so much for pinning! We have all the ingredients to make the popcorn but sadly haven't had time yet. Maybe this weekend! Better late than never, right?! :)
