10 Simple Ways Kids Can Celebrate Earth Day

10 Simple Ways Kids Can Celebrate Earth Day | Multicultural Kid Blogs

Do you celebrate Earth Day with your kids? Often times, kids may feel that there isn’t something they can do to save the Earth. My kids have told me “I’m just a kid mommy!” So we came up with 10 tangible and age-appropriate ways kids can make little changes in their lives that will reduce waste and energy. Let us know how you’re celebrating Earth Day this April, and every day!

1. Use reusable sandwich bags and containers at lunch.

2. Power off electronics when not in use.

3. RECYCLE! Read how kids and families recycle in Germany.


4. Bike or walk to school or nearby places.


5. Help your parents to remember reusable grocery bags.

6. Turn off the lights when you don’t need them.

7. Compost your kitchen scraps.

8. Clean up litter, so it doesn’t end in our waterways.

9. Plant a tree (or a garden!).
