Five Easy and Fun Earth Day Activities for Kids


Plant trees and shrubs

Great Earth Day Activities for Kids: Plant a Tree

You can gather kids in your neighbor hood and ask them to get a sapling of a popular shrub or tree that they can plant in their backyard or garden. Better, ask them to give a name to their plant or tree and share information about it with other kids. Take some time to identify other plants and trees in the park or area. Pick up a book on tree identification to help you out.


Switch off all lights for at least one hour
Great Earth Day Activities for Kids: Turn off the Lights

This is one of the great earth day activities for kids that doesn’t require any tools at all! Just plan a time and decide to turn off the lights at certain hour together. You can light up candles or simply sit outside under sky. This is perhaps a great way to bond too and share stories or play games. This is also a good time to talk about how people lived before electricity!



Great Earth Day Activities for Kids: Recycle

Teach your kid the importance of recycling from a very young age. They can collect discarded items and see how they can be used.  For example, they can collect grocery bags, bottle caps, plastic bottles, egg cartons, and even old mobiles. You can make some interesting household items with them. Let the kids use their imagination and come up with some great ideas.


Earth Day Parade

If you want to involve more kids and spread more awareness, you can organize a parade. The kids can dress up in colorful clothes, make banners relating to Earth day and sing songs to grab attention.


Hold a garage sale

Great Earth Day Activities for Kids: Garage Sale

Reach out in your closets and attics and take out all those household items that have been lying there for years and never been used. Hold a garage sale and sell out all those items to people who need them. You can donate the left over items to a charity or orphanage.

Our children are the next generation and Earth is our only home. Get some Earth Day activities for kids planned, so that they develop a love for their planet very early on at a young age.

  4. Love those ideas! We have all of them already planned except the parade. We don’t have one in our area sadly. But we recycle all the time anyway; and our gardens should be ready for planting on earth day. I’m excited for that. My kids love doing things that are good for the earth.
