Daniel Tiger's Earth Day Tips
Hi there, Neighbor!
It’s finally spring in the Neighborhood of Make-Believe!
Earth Day is right around the corner and a special nature-themed episode of Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood, the top-rated series from The Fred Rogers Company, will premiere on Monday, April 20 on KUED (Read More) – just in time to celebrate the big day on Wednesday, April 22!
Below are some tips inspired by Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood to share with your family to make Earth Day a very special day.
Be an explorer! – As the weather gets warmer, go on a nature walk with your child – even if it’s just in your own backyard! On the walk, ask your child what they see in the environment and have them make some observations, including the types of animals and plants they spot.
Plan a picnic! – Having a picnic is a fun way to enjoy nature, time with family and friends, and a delicious meal on a spring day. Pack some healthy snacks and foods. Bring reusable plates, cups, utensils and napkins – and don’t forget the blanket!
Think green! – Make recycling a fun daily activity at home. Set up bins in an area where your child sees you using them. Allow your child to decorate the recycling bins by creating signs to help them remember what each one is for. It’s a great way to get them more invested in the activity and make them want to use the bins each and every day!
Save some H2O! – Remind your child to turn off the water while soaping up their hands and turn it back on to rinse them – and that goes with brushing too! Also instead of buying water bottles, think about using a reusable water bottle.
