Earth Day is Wednesday April 22nd and to help you celebrate, we’ve got some amazing resources lined up for your homeschool theme day or spread these out throughout the week for some earth day fun.

1 – Recycled Arts & Crafts

Dig through your recycling box and make a “trash robot”. This is a great way to teach kids about what items are recyclable. Cardboard boxes make for a great robot body. Kids will love using their creativity to create their very own recycled robot friend.

2 – Listen to Earth Day Themed Songs

Kids love learning through movement and song. Here are some of our favourite Earth Day themed songs you can listen to for free on youtube.

3 – Watch a Nature Inspired Movie

I recently watched the adorable movie “Bee Movie” with my son and we had a great conversation afterwards about the importance of bees and how each species plays a key role in keeping our planet healthy. Celebrate Earth Day by talking about all the animals that contribute to making our earth healthy and vibrant.

If you’d like to delve a little deeper into the life of bees, check out this incredible lift the flap book “Why Do We Need Bees?” and for toddlers and preschoolers, “That’s Not My Bee”. Did you know we have an Usborne Shop at the cafe? Email us anytime with your Usborne books order.

5 – Have an Earth Day Scavenger Hunt

Who doesn’t love a great scavenger hunt? Make a list of items found in your neighbourhood or backyard such as leaves, pinecones, acorns, rocks, flowers, and sticks. Once you’ve collected all of the items on your list, talk about the role each plays in nature. For example, birds gather up sticks to make nests. Chipmunks collect acorns to eat.

6 – Get Crafty with an Earth Day Themed Craft

We love using crafts to capture kids’ interest and imagination. Here’s a very simple craft that any age will love. All you’ll need is:

  • a small paper plate
  • green tissue paper cut up into tiny squares
  • blue finger paint
  • brown and red construction paper
  • scissors
  • glue

Let your little one get their hands messy and spread blue finger paint all around the plate. Once it’s dry add glue some green tissue paper on top of the blue background. If they’re a little older, you can have them look at a globe and try to mimic the shape of the continents. Then trace their handprint over the brown construction paper and cut it out. Glue it over top of their earth. Cut out a red heart and paste that on top of the hand. If you don’t have tissue paper, you can also use blue and green paint and apply with a sponge to the paper plate to create a slightly different look.
