Earth Day Activities!

Happy Earth Day everyone! I hope you are all having a wonderful Monday, We are both having a pretty good day despite the gloomy weather. We are going to be enjoying our Earth Day by painting some stuff indoors and pretend cooking some delicious ;-) healthy meals. hehe

here are some ideas you and your little one can do depending on the weather and what you have available to you:

  • Play Dough
  • Painting
  • Drawing with crayons (use up carton from cereal boxes to make a nice card)
  • Sensory box (no need for rainbow rice, use beans, lentils, flour... so many recipes around)
  • Reading
  • Puzzles
  • if you have a tablet (you can read, do puzzles, practice the alphabet or shapes... it pretty limitless)
  • Pretend play
  • Go out and play, look and point at different things around you. 
  • Go to a playground
  • Get dirty with them and plant something or Play in a sandbox!
  • Cook something together or ask them to help you put the dishes away
  • Make a tent out of sheets, furniture and cushions.
  • Sing and Dance (my daughter goes crazy around music.
  • Watch a movie
  • If your child is a little older you can sew a doll or make collages or other fun crafts.
There is so much you can do. I will be posting a new Sensory Recipe tomorrow hopefully and this awesome cookie recipe I found. Big soft cookies with choc chunks anyone?!?!

I'm off to try to sew a pair of leggins for my little carebear (new to sewing), Wish me luck!!! :D
