Tribute to Mother Nature

Happy beleated earth day.

We celebrated earth day at Primary Activity days this week. We played a matching game about how long it takes pieces of garbage to decompose in landfills (styrophome is 100 million years to eternity - scientists aren't sure; banana peels are 3-4 weeks). Then we took the girls and their recyclables to the recycling center and with the money from recycling each girl purchased reusable grocery bags to take home. Top it all off with McDonald's sundaes and it was a pretty good activity!

I think Little S and I will try the activity pictured below as part of our earth day festivities :)

On a related note, I came across this blog - Unplug Your Kids. Some of the ideas are cheesy, but I like the links to other similar sites.

We are also highly anti-plastic container. Disposable shopping bags are of the devil.
