Happy Earth Day!

This post is a little late. I have had it in my drafts since last week, but I wanted to post it before April was over. We had a fun earth day filled with activities. Here are some of the things we did.
Amelia got the World map out and wanted to see where we lived. So, I showed her the Atlas so she could see where we were on the map. She followed the lines and asked where Boo and Arn live and where
Chris and Adrienne live. We traced the roads with our fingers. This is our HUGE laminated US Atlas from when we were truck drivers
We painted the earth on coffee filters using blue and green paint. Aren't they pretty?
Next, we spread peanut butter onto rice cakes and pressed them in birdseed to make feeders.
We went outside and placed them in the trees.
We planted Marigolds in individual pots.
Then we planted an Annabelle Hygrangea just like the other one we have in the back already. They get large white snowball type blooms. Unfortunately,a week later, it is not doing too well. It looks find of weary and limp. I think we may need to move it to another spot...I'm just not sure where.

  1. I love this idea! I found your blog through the homeschooling lounge - thanks for writing and encouraging other homeschooling moms!! Maybe we'll try this bird feeder.
