25 Earth Day activities outdoors

Free Outdoor Activities for Kids RandomRecycling.com

Happy Earth Day 2013! While I believe Earth Day should be everyday, I do like being able to highlight easy ways to bring a little more green into your life. Getting kids outside to appreciate nature will make them good stewards of the Earth as they grow up. If they don’t get out and experience nature, they won’t be that motivated to help protect it.

    We’ve done a lot of these, although our babies aren’t quite big enough yet for some. But I can hardly wait until we can have an outside musical jam session. I think that would be totally awesome. And I hadn’t thought of #25 for some reason. I’ll put that on the list!
