10 Earth day activities for kids

Today I have 10 earth day activities for kids to share with you. They are a mixture of crafts, sensory play and other activities. There is something suitable for toddlers, preschool age and primary school kids. Earth day is On April 22nd so not long now but these ideas would work equally well at any time as it’s always nice to learn about our planet. You could use these activities and earth day to talk to your children about issues such as recycling, plastic pollution, climate change or any other environmental issue.

      I can imagine it is hard to continually come up with new activities.

    I’d not realised it was Earth Day tomorrow! Hopefully a day we can get outside and learn something, but I love these craft ideas. The paper plate ones are really lovely – we have a tonne left over from a party, so the perfect use for them! Thanks for joining us at #SharingtheBlogLove

    I didn’t realise it was Earth day until my daughter came home and told me they had done activities at school. These are great ideas and my girls would love them. Thank you for joining us at #SharingtheBlogLove
