You know that wonderful big mama that we all live on, she supports us, takes care of us, grows food for us, and takes an awful lot of abuse from us. How about giving her some extra love today and then carrying it forward on the other 364 days of the year!
Yesterday at Root Children we read my second kids book Elias and the Tree Stairs, talked about Earth Day different things to do on Earth Day today, then we recycled some glass jars by turning them into fun glass jars to put flowers on if we go on nature walks today, and since we were reading all about Mr. Marble maker himself Elias the jars could even be marble collector jars! We used a pile of stickers that a friend had given me that she had been saving up for quite a few years.
Wouldn't you know it the trees around The Womb Room were quite enchanted and we even found some marballs- or as us humans call them marbles!
What will you be doing this Earth Day? Here is a quick way you can make fun jars at home too. Do you have a bunch of tissue paper left over from gifts or packages? Tear it up into little pieces and use some modge podge to attach to a recycled glass jar. Spear some glue onto the jar, layer on the pieces overlapping at spots, then once the whole thing is covered, spear one more layer of glue and let dry. Know you have a lovely jar to put flowers in, make some homemade bath salts with essential oils and epsome salt, or make a wire handle and keep these to deliver May Day flowers to your friends!
This is a super fast project that takes less than half an hour- I like to use frappuccino jars myself, the labels come off super easy, they resemble the old milk jars, and well the vanilla is just darn tasty all be it not that good for you!
Enjoy the day- here is another fun project that I did for Babble also to help celebrate the day! Of course you can always snuggle up under a tree and read some good books too! I don't think the trees will mind at all listening! Happy Earth Day everyone!
