Earth Day & Beyond

Blogger Kimberli Buckley shares ideas on how you can celebrate Earth Day all year round.

Earth Day may have already passed, but there are so many ways to celebrate and show respect for our planet throughout the year. Check out Billion of Acts of Green, a worldwide enviromental movement that is helping to protect the Earth for future generations. Their site has a ton of great resources and ideas to help you take action all year long, like using a sustainable mode of transportation for your commute to work. 

Bottle cap garden art

Looking for some cute and eco-friendly crafts to get a head start planning projects for next year's Earth Day? These fun crafts will help connect teens to their enviroment and inspire them to learn more about Earth Day.

Bottle cap garden art: This is a great way to help save the planet, keep all bottle caps and make art.

Earth Day slime: Who doesn't like playing with wiggly-jiggly slime? Grab the glue, starch and food coloring and you are all set!

Herb mason jar planters: Brighten up your Earth Day celebration with these adorable herbs planted in decorated mason jars.

Clay leaf impressions: These clay leaf prints air-dry easily and are not only fun, but also very educational.

Recycled bird feeder (courtesy of Momtastic and Hand Made by Kelly): This beautiful bird feeder will attract birds and maybe even squirrels, too. They also make a great Earth Day gift for friends and family.

Water pollution exploration: This is a creative way to teach teens about water pollution by using a sponge shaped like a fish. 

Tune in next month for more craft ideas for tweens and teens from Mrs. Librarian Lady!
