Earth Day Scavenger Hunt

Girlie and I went on an Earth Day Scavenger Hunt today as we walked through our neighborhood. I found this idea at Writing The Waves of Motherhood. She had so many great ideas!

I used a piece of our recycled scrap paper to make a list of things to look for on our Earth Day walk...birds, squirrels, clouds, tree with leaves, pine cone...

We noticed at the pine tree area that there were tiny pine trees growing up from the ground! We talked about how trees give us oxygen so the more trees the better!

We had to venture to a nearby neighborhood that has big trees to look for a squirrel....never did find one! But, we did get to talk about what they eat and where they live, what would happen if all the trees were gone and that our neighborhood probably didn't have squirrels because we need to plant more trees for them.

My girlie loves nature, so she called it a nature walk! She also informed me that she "Didn't get to bring anything home from nature!" Which gave us a chance to talk about what is better for nature to pick a flower or let it grow?

We had a great time together learning about the blessings all around us. How did you share Earth Day with your kids?


  1. Very cool! Sounds like you guys had a great time. I love that you talked about how the trees give oxygen, etc... I'm so glad that you stopped by. Newly following you!

  2. P.S. Do you mind if I link you up to my "Fishful Thinking Thursday" post?
