What better way is there to get your little ones thinking about our planet than by filling a week with activities about it. We have put together some practical ideas to help you teach your toddlers about looking after the environment.
Earth Day is a day designed to inspire awareness and appreciation for the Earth's environment and is held on April 22 each year. It is similar to World Environment Day. Earth Day falls during spring in the Northern Hemisphere and autumn in the Southern Hemisphere.
Remember: Every day is Earth Day. Anything to help our environment is a perfect thing to do on Earth Day and every day. Don't restrict yourself to just one day a year; learn about how you can make a difference to environmental protection all the time. And put it into practice – every day!
