I decided this year that I would do something on Earth Day. So I went & spent some time finding some fun worksheets for the boys to do. I found a neat coloring page & a simple worksheet that helped explain what it was all about. We did those & then headed outside. After all, it's all about the Earth right?
We all put on our muck boots, grabbed some plastic shopping bags, and went for a walk on our road to pick up any trash. Amazingly enough, we really didn't find a ton. We filled three plastic shopping bags full of trash plus one with bottles/cans (which we already recycle here since Maine pays $0.05 for each one).
These two were my best helpers. They actually started fighting over who would get each piece of trash! I finally gave N the bag of bottles/cans. He went down some pretty steep banks to grab them up.
Our little piece of road is now just a tad bit cleaner.
