The sun is shinning and we’re gearing up for a full day outdoors, enjoying our beautiful Earth! Here’s a few ways we’re celebrating Earth Day at our house:
Kicking off the day with Planet Earth Pancakes
How To: After you mix your pancake batter, drop in about 2 drops of green food dye. Just stir once or twice to make a “swirl” but not turn the batter green. You can add some blue too, if you’d like! Then cook as you usually would.
Reading An Earth Day Book
I recently bought the book 10 Things I Can Do To Help My World. I think it’s a really simple way to explain Earth Day and helping the planet. It’s not easy to explain Earth Day to a 2 and 4 year old, but this book is wonderful!
A Picnic In The Park
We’re meeting some friends for a picnic and tons of fun outside!
Earth Friendly Products
Our house is far from perfect when it comes to Earth conscious products, but we’re trying. One place I really try to stay away from chemicals and try to find “green” products is for my kids’ skin. For about the past year, we’ve been using a lot of Babyganics. Some of our favorite Babyganics products:
Shampoo, bubble bath, dish soap, sunscreen and laundry detergent. You can see the whole product line on their website.
Sometimes we take the Dish and Bottle Soap outside for some bubbly water table fun!
For Earth Day, I asked Babyganics to share some of the reasons they are “Earth friendly” and super safe for our little ones. Here’s what they said:
+At Babyganics we design all the products parents need to create a baby-safe world where their babies are free to explore, develop and thrive.
+ We make a whole eco-system of baby-safe, non-toxic, hard-working and nourishing products derived from plant-based ingredients; from floor cleaner to bubble bath, sunscreen to toothpaste, dish soap to diaper cream.
+Our line of personal care products contains our NeoNourish(r) Seed Oil Blend. This 100% natural seed oil blend is combination of oils from the seeds of Black Cumin, Tomato, Sunflower, Cranberry and Red Raspberry specifically made to nurture and support the unique needs of babies “work in progress” skin.
+Our line of household products are plant-based, non-toxic, hard-working and completely baby-safe
+Although helping parents create a baby-safe world is our mission every day, it’s even more important on Earth Day because babies should be exposed to a baby-safe world outside of the home as well.
We buy our Babyganics at Target or order from Diapers.com. You can find more places to buy their products here. Right now you can get 20% off all Babyganics sun products with code SUNNYDAYS at Diapers.com.
What are you doing to celebrate today?
Happy Earth Day everyone!
We were not compensated for this post. I have received a few samples from Babyganics, but have been purchasing them, monthly, for a year now.
