Earth Week

We thought we'd begin our trip around the world....with the whole world! We did Earth Week last week and it was a big success. A few of the activities included:

*Gardening Day - Planting seeds for a pumpkin patch (if we can ever get the dirt in the backyard ready ;)
*A visit from Amelia the puppet who told us all about recycling
*Recycling treasure hunt and field trip to drop everything off at the bins!
*Making paper beads from scraps. Instructions found on this awesome blog!
*Garbage walk - the kids picked up trash on a walk around the neighborhood. We recycled what we could, threw away what we was useless and use the best items for "Garbage Art", which was a huge success :)

It's an igloo, just in case you were wonderin...
