Wheeeeze, cough, splutter…it’s the sound of our beautiful Earth suffering and calling out to us for help!
It’s our home, the only one we have, and we need to all do our part to help take care of the earth, the place God has entrusted us to care for!!!
April 22 is the annual day to celebrate Earth day and it all began in 1970. I’ve created this cute Earth Day hand lettering practice sheet to encourage a fun activity that will prompt discussions with our kids on ways we can help our planet THRIVE.
Earth Day Hand Lettering Practice Sheet
I’ve included a bunch of fun lettering and words on this hand lettering practice sheet for you. I know you’re gonna love it! 😊
Here’s a list of the Earth themed words I’ve included on the worksheet:
The great thing about printables is that unlike a book, you can print ONLY the copies you need (thus helping the earth!), and spend quality time with your family, improving your hand lettering skills while teaching all about the ways we can help earth stay clean, healthy, and FLOURISH!
It’s important that we make it clear to our kids that we don’t just discuss how we can help earth on Earth day. We want it to be a ongoing conversation throughout the year, not a fleeting moment of caring for one day and then business as usual. We should always be mindful of our actions and how they can help or hinder our planet.
Make a point of sharing facts about pollution and deforestation to help kids understand what’s happening. We don’t want to scare them, but we want them to understand that our actions have consequences.
You could discuss all the activities you could do together to do your part for earth. How about taking part in a beach clean up, or picking up litter in a group at your local park? Planting trees is another great activity!
Do you recycle? We have two recycle cans and the garbage company collects ours every two weeks. That means we are using up one whole recycle street cart each week as they are always filled as we really try to recycle everything we can. In our kitchen, we have a wastebasket for trash and a recycle bin too, so both me AND the kids are recycling! It’s never too late to start to recycle if you don’t already recycle!
I’d love to hear all the ways you reduce your carbon footprint, and what ideas you have for being more eco-friendly in the comments below! The more tips, the better, so we can all grow and help our planet!
