We look forward to celebrating Earth Day this month and learning all about how we can help take care of our planet and thank it for its hospitality. Below you will find a great list of books that teach children how to protect Planet Earth, so that you celebrate along with us!

Activities For All Early Learning Stages
0-12 months: Rainbow Color Mixing!
Give an intro to primary and secondary colors in a safe way! Place white cardstock cut into a rainbow shape with red, yellow and blue paint across it. Slide it into a gallon bag and watch the babies mix it up!
Edible Chia Seed Slime
Taste-safe and fun-textured! This is a great messy, edible sensory activity and you don't have to worry about anyone getting anything in their mouths! They will love squishing the chia seeds into the slime too.
1 & 2-year-olds: Rice Cake Piglets
We love to make simple snacks exciting with just a few extra ingredients! The children loved these rice cakes turned piglets. Click here to see how to make the easy homemade strawberry cream cheese recipe!
3-year-olds and up: Tooth Floss Practice
Teach young ones about the importance of flossing by simply putting play dough in between largo Lego "teeth" and giving them string to remove it!
Put on your goggles and grab your test tubes; it’s science time with Ms. Lish, our Teaching & Learning Director here at the Well. See a chemical reaction and how lava moves up from inside the earth, using ingredients you may already have in your kitchen!
