These days kids are pretty ecologically aware, but you can still bring home some important lessons on Earth Day that will help instill in them some planet friendly habits that will last a lifetime. I just completed a couple of environment focused articles for HowStuffWorks.com, a Discovery Channel owned site. They have helpful tips for Earth Day activities and a few suggestions on how to help your kids grow their environmental muscles.
One of my favorite quotes from physician and philosopher and Albert Schweitzer goes like this:
"By having a reverence for life, we enter into a spiritual relation with the world. By practicing reverence for life we become good, deep, and alive."
Have a wonderful Earth Day, and make this one count by showing your kids that having a reverence for life and the world around them is important -- and fun.
