We’ve been learning a lot about our planet at school. Earth Day, April 22, is a wonderful time to get your children thinking about ways they can make a difference for our environment. Yes! Toddlers and Preschoolers can help save the earth too! 

Here are some things you can do at home with your child to celebrate Earth Day.

Earth Day Activities for families with Preschoolers

  • Help plant a tree or native plants in your garden
  • Help clean out a closet, room or garage and donate outgrown toys, books & clothes
  • Walk to the store, a friend’s house… instead of driving
  • Go swimming instead of turning on the air conditioning
  • Put on some gloves and walk around your neighborhood picking up trash
  • Help replace some old fashioned incandescent light bulbs with new energy efficient ones
  • Go outside for a hike, a walk or a ride and simply enjoy nature
  • Play a board game instead of watching TV

Every day preschool habits to start or improve on

  • Turn off appliances and lights when you leave the room
  • Recycle paper, plastic, glass
  • Turn off water when brushing teeth
  • Put left over food in the refrigerator not the trash
  • Use reusable bags for groceries
Everyone, no matter how old or how young, can help make Woodland Hills a better place.
