Tons of Earth Day science and sensory activities for kids. Including sensory bins, soil and recycling experiments, and sensory bottles.
Earth Day is a wonderful opportunity to talk about some of the ways our kids can contribute to leaving the world a better place for generations to come. This includes reusing and recycling, gardening, and even a bit about the structure of the Earth itself. We can inspire our kids to take care of and learn about the planet in which they live.
