What Can Kids Do for Earth Day?
You might wonder what kids can do for Earth Day? Here are 7 Easy Earth Day Tips For Kids:
- Plant a garden
- Make a bird feeder
- Build an insect hotel
- Clean up the park or forest
- Do not waste water
- Turn off the light
You might be surprised but even kids at a young age can already participate in Earth Day.
Prior to engaging kids in Earth Day, I always make sure to explain to them what Earth Day is and why it is so important to take care of our planet Earth. Afterward, you can start picking with your children together an Earth day project.
So let’s have a look at our Earth Day ideas above:
If you have a garden at home or at your grandparent’s house, why not plant a new tree, flowers, or other plants? Give them their own tools and they will have an amazing time working with the Earth.
Instead of planting new trees, you could also make sure there always be birds singing a song for you. To make this happen your kids could make their own bird feeder.
Besides a birdfeeder, you could also build an insect hotel for your yard. It is such a fun DIY project. In case your children are not too handy you could also help clean up a park or forest in your community.
But let’s face it, Earth day should be every day and even little things help our planet. Try not wasting water, turn off the light if you do not need it or recycling the trash helps already a lot.

I like to share our Earth day routine with you guys:
We love to start our day with an engaging book and talk about how we can help take care of mother Earth before we participate in our community clean event. There we spend a good part of the day outside cleaning our village.
Afterward, my children are so hungry and exhausted that we need to have some downtime to catch energy again. Therefore I made this fun nature bingo for Earth day.
Let’s find out how it works!
Earth Day Bingo Patterns
Since I have younger children I decided instead of just choosing words for our bingo game to mix them up with pictures. This way the younglings can participate in our fun Earth day picture bingo game.
I choose Earth day symbols such as our planet, raindrops, the sun, gardening gloves, and many more.

It even can be used as Earth day bingo for adults.
