Celebrate Earth Day

Saturday, April 22, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm

Celebrate Earth Day as we gather together and appreciate our home as well as learn new ways to take care of it! Join us for recycling activities, Earth science, and art! It’s the coolest celebration on Earth!

Time: A.M. Activities: 10:30am Sensational Story Time, 11:00am, Art Studio Sessions, 11:30am Science for the Senses

This is our Home, a home that we all share in common. It doesn’t matter where you are from or what color your skin is. What matters is that we only have one home planet and it’s very important that we take care of our home. Promote environmental awareness on Earth Day and throughout the year by visiting Pretend City to celebrate our Earth through engaging activities such as:

• Smart Art: Recycle City – From cereal box buildings to can cars the possibilities are endless when you recreate with recyclable materials. Stop by the Art Studio to see what your little ones will engineer.
• Sensational Story Time: Compost Stew – Who knew rotting vegetables and fruit could be so great for the environment? This story time and activity will help you figure out what you need to create your own compost bin at home.
• Science for the Senses: Seed Exploration – Your children will enjoy using their deductive reasoning skills and senses as they explore and match a variety of seeds.
• Art Studio Sessions: What Shape is Our Earth? – We will make our own earth to take home using coffee filters, droppers, and colored water; using the colors, blue and green.

Grown-up Tip: Plant a vegetable garden with your child! If you don’t have a yard, large pots and window boxes will work perfectly. Let your child choose new types of fruits and vegetables to try each year. The garden will provide food and teach your child how to live a more sustainable life.
