EARTH DAY 2020
Earth Day is April 22 and even though outside activities are limited there are many things you can do around your home to help our environment. Here are a few ideas:
1. Get creative. Use plastic bottles and bags to make fun and useful items for inside and outside. Search the internet for ways to recycle. You can check out https://www.pinterest.com/sherron/plastic-bag-crafts/, https://www.reusethisbag.com/articles/creative-recycling-projects/, and https://www.boredpanda.com/plastic-bottle-recycling-ideas/?utm_source=google&utm_medium=organic&utm_campaign=organic, to name a few.
2. Discover ways to create indoor and outdoor gardens using food scraps. Search https://www.diyncrafts.com/4732/repurpose/25-foods-can-re-grow-kitchen-scraps, https://home.howstuffworks.com/green-living/fertilize-plants-kitchen-scraps.htm, for helpful tips.
3. Collect rainwater for your garden. I have actually done this except I didn't add a spout. I used a bucket to scoop out the water. https://www.pinterest.com/pin/283515739021933579/?nic_v1=1avWT3q37XNZji4y6H%2Bj1TdOQI7UZ0JC3VJDgEo2K3wXprLmfBvmPfQzk1AuIKZ42U
4. Recycle material from clothes you no longer need and make a quilt or stuffed animals. Your kids will love this project. https://www.lifehack.org/453113/27-creative-ways-to-reuse-old-clothing.
