Bloggermoms Top 10 things to do with kids for Earth Day, Earth Month and Earth Week is about serious fun and critical thinking aboout the environment
Duluth, GA (PRWEB) March 31, 2010
Looking for things to do with kids for Earth Day, Earth Week or Earth Month? How about 'Supermarket Package Hunt' or 'Kids Earth Patrol' or a 'Flower Petal Treasure Map' or writing your own Earth Month Book? Bloggermoms, an Atlanta based company that offers resources and advice for parenting in a multicultural environment, today released a list of ‘Top 10 things to do with kids for Earth Day, Earth Week or Earth Month’. The list of kids’ activities for Earth Day, Earth Week or Earth Month looks beyond the usual list of art ideas with recycled items to a more holistic approach to get kids thinking about their environment. Concepts include building an appreciation for diversity, putting kids in charge, and capturing green efforts and ideas to reflect on for the rest of the year.
The list of 'Top 10 things to do with kids for Earth Day, Earth Week and Earth Month' from Bloggermoms goes back to the fundamentals of going green – a love for the environment and the earth and a critical analysis of how things in the immediate world affect the environment. The common theme through all the ideas and activities is on communication with your kids on the 'why' and 'how' of conservation. So the Supermarket Package hunt talks of tracking down most eco friendly packaging in the supermarket, which you can then talk through. The Family Scorecard puts numbers on different family measures and ideas around going green. The 'Recycled Art Show' and the 'Earth Book' are ways to capture the events and ideas of earth month so that they live beyond a short celebration.
Earth month’s coincidence with spring also offers wonderful opportunities to capture and admire the beauty of our environment while working to preserve it. The kids activities can also work as spring break ideas or spring activities to do with kids.
The list is part of a series of ideas and articles on Bloggermoms around the theme of green living with kids and Earth Month. The articles will focus on getting kids involved and making green living a part of family life beyond a short Earth Month, Earth Week or Earth Day. There are articles on multicultural quick and easy lunch box recipes and weekly lunch menus that showcase the diversity of our earth right in the middle of recess. There are articles on ‘Five everyday things you can replace with re-usable materials’ and individual perspectives on Green Living.
More resources for sustainable living with kids can be found at Bloggermoms as well as a host of articles on life as a mom, living in a new culture and raising kids in a multicultural environment.
