As parents, it’s essential to instill healthy habits in our children from a young age. Celebrating Earth Day with your toddlers and kids is an excellent way to teach them the value of taking care of the environment and building healthy habits for a lifetime.
The history of Earth Day dates back to 1970, when Senator Gaylord Nelson of Wisconsin organized a nationwide environmental protest to raise awareness about the impact of pollution and environmental degradation. The event brought together people from all walks of life and resulted in the creation of the Environmental Protection Agency and the passage of the Clean Air, Clean Water, and Endangered Species Acts.
Since then, Earth Day has become an annual event celebrated in over 190 countries worldwide. By celebrating Earth Day with your children, you are not only contributing to the preservation of the planet but also fostering important values in your children.
