Earth Day – What is it all about?

Protecting the planetEarth Day is on Sunday 22nd April.   Earth Day is a Birthday!  Just like a birthday is a special day to celebrate a person, Earth Day is a special day that celebrates the Earth.  On this day people of all backgrounds, faiths and nationalities in 175 countries around the World campaign through events.  Their aim being to raise consciousness about the way our modern lives are affecting the planet and celebrate the wonder of our Earth.  It is a great way for children to think about the environment and conservation.

Pedro, the folks from Sussex Green Living, friends and family are meeting in Coneyhurst (it was going to be the Human Nature Garden in Horsham Park however due to the weather, a change of location) to have a picnic and play lots of outdoor games.  Join us if you fancy!

Activities will include:

  • Decorating nature masks made out of recycled materials.
  • Bring along a yoghurt pot or two which you have already decorated, then plant it up with flowers which will attract wildlife into your garden or herbs to eat.  Soil and seeds provided.
  • Recycling race – where the children learn about recycling in a fun and competitive way.
  • Football and  games.

And any other ideas you want to throw in!
