Earth Day is April 22, 2014 this year and over a billion people all around the world will take part in Earth Day projects. Imagine the impact if this was done every day? Individuals should be taking care of the environment every day of the year, but Earth Day is a great opportunity to introduce kids to the importance of doing so. This day is often introduced in school but can easily be used by parents and guardians to further educate kids about the earth and its well being. There are many great ways to introduce kids to the idea, and while they may still be too young to understand the scope of the entire world, it is still possible to bring it to their developing level.
1. National Geographic is a wonderful way to introduce kids to the world around them. There is so much of the world they have not seen and looking at the vivid images in the pages of National Geographic or National Geographic Kids is a great way to introduce them to the world, its beauty, as well as books about the subject that will help encourage them to keep learning.
2. Picture books and informational books are great ways to introduce kids to the idea of Earth Day while also teaching them about the beauty the day is trying to save and protect. Books can also teach them about pollution and its effects.
Kids Personalized Books by KD Novelties are great ways to help get kids interested. Their personalized books such as their Fishing Adventure and Camping Adventure can help inspire kids to look forward to outdoor adventures. “When kids see themselves embarking on journeys in these completely personalized books, they will be more excited about returning outdoors, thus allowing them to create a personal relationship with nature and understanding its beauty,” says Kim Delgado of KD Novelties.
3. Have them help with recycling. Explain the importance of recycling and why certain materials are recycled while others are not. A bit like composting, having kids help sort through the recycling makes the activity a daily routine, making it a part of their lives, and will inform them of why it is important to recycle in the first place.
4. Other media sources can be used to help teach kids about Earth Day, the dangers of pollution, and the importance of conservation. Films such as Disney’s Earth and Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax are great choices. Disney’s Earth gives a peek into the wildlife and beauty found all over the world, while The Lorax teaches them a lesson about the dangers of pollution and has a positive conservation message at the end. Once kids feel more excited about the world and know more about how to protect its beauty and its importance, go out and celebrate Earth Day the traditional way by planting a tree and making a difference.
