April 21-27 is Earth Week
Today try a recycling activity such as making these beautiful recycled magazine butterflies! Maybe you would like to make an entire garland of butterflies. It is one origami project which will be great to try, and you can even try it from newspapers or adverts.
Another great project which is great for recycling is to create a re-usable face mask. Use of cloth face coverings to help slow the spread of COVID-19 by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (Homemade Sew and No Sew Instructions). Canada’s chief public health officer -Theresa Tam- now says that wearing a non-medical mask can help stop the spread of COVID-19. Be careful out there!
DIY Earth day wildflower seed bombs are another great project for today. They are fun, and great ways to plant, just by throwing! Try making native berry bush seed bombs, and planting trees, and well the possibilities are endless for planting native seeds.
Today is Monday, April 27, the final day of Earth Week, and the fourth day before the end of the Earth Month celebrations. This year’s Earth Day 2020 theme is Climate Action.
“You cannot get through a single day without having an impact on the world around you. What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make.” — Jane Goodall
