I recently had the opportunity to create some fun and simple Earth Day projects for the latest issue of Parade's Community Table Magazine (in newspapers this week)...the kids and I had a great time doing them together, so I thought I'd share them with you in case you were looking for ideas!
The cookies were by far our favorites...we just dyed two batches of cookie dough green and blue, rolled bits of each in a ball, and baked them. I'm pretty sure I see the Panama Canal.
We used mostly recycled materials (you know, the whole Earth Day thing)...and I think the spread turned out so cute!
These were the first craft projects we've done in the new house, and it felt so good to be creative together again. Finding all our supplies, however, was another story. Fortunately we picked most of them out of the recycle bin.
Did you know this is the 45th year of Earth Day, which was started to support environmental protection, and it's celebrated in 192 countries? I thought it was just a Hallmark thing...but turns out, it was the beginning of the environmental movement! #goearth
