You see, she’s already known as the person who won’t throw anything away in our house and loves to make little projects with everything she can get her hands on. I’m not a fan of the clutter, but I love watching her creativity. This had me thinking though, what are some other ways we can make Earth Day assignments a regular thing all year long, just like her little trash art projects? I came up with 5!

Social Good/ Social Time

I remember hunting for an age-appropriate book about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. to read to my daughter last year and coming up short.

So this year I looked up a few book options in advance. Keep reading for 9 book options that help introduce kids younger than 7 to who Martin Luther King Jr. was, why he’s celebrated, and why he’s still so important. Read more
