Earth Day

I really wanted my littles to have some understanding of what Earth Day could mean to them. So this morning as they came and snuggled up to me in bed, we chatted together about the day. We decided to do some research to get a better understanding and came across these beautiful youtube videos.

My six year old was breathing in time with this video, it was a good time to practice our yogic breath and relaxation.

This video got my children thinking about the good things they can do to help and inspired them to write Earth Day poems.

Then we had some fun getting creative making green gifts, Jar Terrariums.

We used old jars, wire ,gloves, rocks, soil from the garden, and succulents.

We filled half filled the jars with a little of the soil and a little of the rocks, or moss and very carefully, with a glove on, in case the succulent was prickly, planted the succulent.

We used the handle of a spoon gently to push the soil in and around the plants.

Then sprayed them with a mist of water, so as not to damage the fragile succulents.

This one looked like a nest so we made a little bird out of oven bake clay and sat it on top.

We wrapped the wire around the jar so it could be hung up in a sunny place.

Happy Earth Day Rainbow Yogis.
