Earth Day '08

We discussed Earth Day this week. We discussed the things we already do to conserve - cloth diapers, recycling, turning off lights, walking to the store when we can. Zachary wanted to make an earth day flag to hang up outside. We did some "abstract" painting of globes but it ended up being too windy and wet to hang the up. Last night we went to an Earth Day Celebration and Potluck at our friends' house. Everyone brought an organic/local dish to share and the hostess had projects for the kids. The boys made sand art in recycled jars and planted seeds in recycled egg cartons. After our yummy dinner the adults all read questions from cards provided by Organic Valley. For some reason (maybe the juice they had just consumed?) the kids thought every question and every answer was hilarious!
