How do you explain Earth Day to kids?

Every year on April 22nd we celebrate Earth Day all over the world. But you children might wonder what is Earth Day.

Earth Day is an environmental movement that started in 1970. Since the first Earth Day statistics show that over 1 billion people in over 190 countries participate every year.

Why Should We Take Care of Our Earth?

But why is it so important that we take care of Mother Earth?

First of all, children need to understand that we have only one Earth and it is our responsibility to take care of it, so our planet stays clean and healthy.

If we do not care about our environment it will become polluted which is harmful to our health.

Air pollution can cause different problems and diseases, such as respiratory diseases and cancer.

How Can We Help Earth Day for Kids?

But how can we prevent that from happening? How can every single one of us help our environment? How can children and we together as a family participate in Earth Day?

Here are 7 Earth Day tips for kids and families:

  1. Plant a garden with trees and flowers
  2. Turn off the light
  3. Make a bird feeder
  4. Do not waste water

  6. Clean up the park or forest

The important thing to remember is to really help our planet, Earth day should be every day, not only once a year!
