happy earth day

happy earth day!

Well, today is Earth Day. It’s really not even talked about here in S. Africa. At least I haven’t heard anything. I do value recycling and repurposing, though. I think it’s the good steward in me.

In honor of Earth Day, the kids and I made Earths last week for Science. They were so easy and so fun. They were also quick which meant it was easy to turn out lots to make an Earth Day banner! To make your own super easy Earths, here’s what you’ll need…
