  1. Be car-free. Walk or bike to school — not only is it good for the body, it's good for the environment too!
     
  2. Make a bird feeder or house. Use a milk carton, a large water or soda bottle, or a pine cone.
     
  3. Create recycling bins. Cut out pictures of plastic bottles, paper, and aluminum cans and glue them to the bins. Practice sorting together!
     
  4. Make positive promises. Fill a journal with resolutions for how your family can help the earth. Decorate it with photographs, poems, and pictures.
     
  5. Grow something. Plant a seed, sprout, flower, or tree in a pot, garden, or backyard.
     
  6. Spread the love. Make and decorate Earth Day cards using recycled materials. Include an Earth Day celebration tip, and send them to friends and family.
