Earth Day was founded in 1970 by a U.S. Senator, Gaylord Nelson, who was inspired by the student anti-war movement and has become a global environmental movement celebrating the earth and reminding everyone about the ways we can preserve the planet.
In honor of the upcoming earth day, we want to share a few Earth Day resources
Environmental Protection Agency - suggested reading

One of Lady C's personal favorite videos is "Being Green: Elmo Goes Green to Help the Earth" Here's a clip from the DVD!
What are some other ways to teach your children how to show the planet some love and affection?
Check out local museums, parks, botanical gardens and zoos for workshops, craft projects and parades celebrating Earth Day.
Get them involved in your spring planting. Let them enjoy the dirt and worms and bugs and being responsible for caring for plants.
Encourage them to recycle on a daily basis.
Earth Day is every day but April 22nd is a good day to start exposing children to the many easy ways they can help preserve the planet.
