  1. Super fab list! You are amazing Rachelle. Thanks for including some of our ideas. Doesn’t seem like it’s all about lists lately? What is the next trend?

  2. Thank you so much for these ideas. I love the summery feel to them. Great to use too, for garden parties and outdoor hanging out.

  3. Love the list thank you! Just wanted to add that I’ve done the baby food jar votive and they get VERY HOT. They should not be touched or moved by kids.

  4. I stumbled upon your blog following a link from the tiny tikes FB page. The opening Container Fairy Garden photo grabbed my eye, **I** have several of those Dutch houses! Thanks to some trips years ago on KLM flights. — Thanks from some great Earth Day ideas for children.

  5. Earth is simply love, it gives us lots of resources with no cost. What i found that sharing Earth day Images on social media and in schools with kids would enhance love towards it. What say?

  6. Every parent should consider these awesome activities. Thank you for giving me great information. I love your post.

  7. Dear Rachelle,

  8. there could be a law that all the things that take you places are closed and you have to walk to school and other things

  9. earth day is important because It educates us about what we have and what we are losing by acting in ways that aren’t environmentally friendly or energy efficient. Earth Day reminds us that we need to take action now to protect our environment before it’s too late.

  10. […] Day, I came across a site for children’s activities to celebrate this day. It’s called Tinkerhouse. Perhaps parents with young children at home would like to check this link. And Buggy and Buddy […]

  11. I like the ideas that you guys got for all kids and all looks really amazing and fun to do.
