Aside from all the fun you will have making these crafts, consider teaching your children the importance of reducing waste, conserving energy and keeping our planet beautiful and clean. I will admit that I can be wasteful at times, but I am trying to change that one full recycle bin at a time! Have a Happy Earth Day and cherish the planet we live on because we only have one and I do not plan on moving to Mars anytime soon. 

“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, Nothing is going to get better. It’s not.”
