Earth Day

on April 27, 2009

Earth Day was this past Wednesday. It’s a day for awareness and appreciation for the Earth and the environment. It’s hard to explain exactly what Earth Day is to a 2 year old.

On Wednesday, we read about recycling and talked about being less wasteful. Emily loves to throw stuff into the recycle bin. She gets that some stuff goes in there and some doesn’t. Our Earth Day project revolved around something Emily loves: flowers. She loves flowers. Real or fake, she wants to smell them all! So this activity was right up her alley.

We went to Lowes so she could pick out some flowers to plant. Of course she picked some pink ones! She loved digging in the dirt to plant them. Every time we go outside she has to “smell pretty flower”. It was a good day!
