Since my kids were little we made sure they knew the importance of taking care of the earth. The older they have become, the more they have seen a direct correlation in how our actions affect the earth we live in. Earth Day is such a fun time to celebrate with kids, and teach them some valuable lessons. Today we are partnering with Stonyfield® Organic Kids® to share 5 ways to celebrate Earth Day.
- Clean up a local park.
My middle son is obsessed with taking care of the earth, and loves to pick up trash wherever we go so heading to a park is perfect for us. There are plenty of parks that could use a helping hand in our city. It’s an easy way to have a big impact on the earth, and other children’s lives.
- Walk or Ride.
Choosing to walk or ride a bike to your destination rather than driving a car is a great way to celebrate Earth Day. Appreciating and embracing the beauty of the earth, while getting some exercise is a fun way for kids to celebrate.
- Plant a tree or flower.
My kids could play in the dirt all day, so planting a tree or flower is a great way to have fun while celebrating this day. We all grab some shovels and have a great time. This is a great way to acknowledge all the beauty that comes from the earth that we get to enjoy every day.
4. Enjoy some Stonyfield® Organic Kids® yogurt.
Did you know? Stonyfield® Organic Kids® yogurt multipacks are made from plants! Cups made from plants have a lower carbon footprint and are better for the environment than petroleum based cups. This is such a great way to celebrate Earth Month, and snack on the only kid’s yogurt that comes in plant-based cups.
This is my kid’s favorite way to celebrate because, it includes eating which happens to be their favorite hobby.
Another reason that I love Stonyfield® is because they recently completed a sugar reduction across its Stonyfield® Organic Kids® portfolio, featuring 25% – 40% less sugar than the leading kids’ yogurt. So, I don’t have to worry about my kids bouncing off the walls just from having a yogurt.
As a mom, I have always been mindful of the ingredients in the foods and snacks I give my kids. That’s why I love that each cup of Stonyfield® Organic Kids® is always made without the use of toxic persistent pesticides, artificial hormones, antibiotics and GMOs.
5. Make an Organic Meal.
This is a great day to head to the store, and pick up some organic ingredients to make a meal together with your kids. The kids love being involved in the whole process. Some of our favorites are a fresh salad with fruits or a good Chicken Stir Fry. It’s a great way to explain what Earth Day is about in another delicious way.
I hope you will use some of these 5 fun ways to celebrate Earth Day with your kids this year.
Do you have any other ways that you celebrate this day?
