Earth Day Activities for Preschoolers
t’s never too early to introduce planet-saving habits to your little one, as well as a deep appreciation for nature and the outdoors. Earth Day is celebrated on April 22nd each year to highlight the importance of environmental education and conservation to protect our planet’s natural resources.
With the right guiding hand, children have the power to make a meaningful difference for our planet. To celebrate Earth Day, we created some fun printables, to practice skills, learn new vocabulary, and of course have fun.
