5 Family Friendly Ways to Celebrate Earth Day

Since 1970, the world has been celebrating Earth Day every year on April 22nd. Celebrations are meant to spread awareness on environmental conservation. If you’ve been wondering how you will honor this year’s Earth Day with your family, this blog post is for you. Below are 5 family friendly ways to celebrate Earth Day.

1. Plan or attend a tree planting ceremony with your family.

This is one of the most common ways to celebrate Earth Day with your family and friends. Many schools and organizations plan tree planting ceremonies, check your local Community Center or newspaper for a schedule. You can consider attending such family friendly ceremonies with your kids. Alternatively, you can conduct your own tree planting ceremony in your backyard or farm and invite close family members and friends to honor the occasion.

2. Plan a local cleanup day.

You can consider cleaning up your local neighborhood with the help of family members, neighbors and friends. It doesn’t have to be a big exercise. You can simply walk around as a group picking up litter. Tip: You will need safety or protective gear i.e. gloves for this exercise.

3. Attend Environmental Education programs or classes.

If you don’t want to pick up dirt, you can consider attending educational programs in your neighborhood. Environmental Education Classes and programs that teach kids about planting flowers, trees and grass are likely to be planned for your neighborhood around Earth Day. Such classes are perfect for learning about conserving the environment as well as beautifying it. They are also fun and educational for all age groups.

4. Organize a fund raising event in your community.

This is another fun way to celebrate Earth Day with your family. You can engage your kids to draw up sponsor sheets and placards to be used outdoors in your fundraising event. The event should have an environmental friendly theme. You can donate the proceeds to any environmental conservation organization in your community.

5. Enjoy the outdoors with your family.

Families rarely get time to enjoy outdoor activities, which are important in reminding us the importance of conserving nature. You can choose to hike, take a walk or visit a nearby park with your family. This is a perfect way to enjoy all the wonders Mother Nature has to offer.
