Take Part in the Community Cleanup

Make Some Upcycled Art

This is a fun way to teach kids how to reduce, reuse, and recycle! Cardboard art, nature collages, and other recycled craft ideas are creative AND economical!

 

Plant Something Native

What plants and flowers are native to your backyard? Why does that even matter? Have fun with your kids finding your area on the map and looking up your favorites. Then make a plan to plant some native plants at your house!

 

Make a Scrap Garden

Kitchen scrap gardening is growing new plants from items you would normally toss in the compost heap. Save those potato tops, avocado pits, and old sprouted onions and start a new veggie patch with them.

Learn Something New

You would not believe all the amazing nature documentaries on Disney+ right now. Our favorite recommendation for Earth Day to watch with older kids is The Sea of Hope on Disney’s National Geographic playlist. Younger kids will love any of the Disney Nature films. They are breathtaking!
