Head outside with your kiddos (gloves and bags in hand) and pick up litter. Clean up your surroundings, make it more beautiful than when you found it.

If you don’t already have a recycling program in your house this is a great week to start.  If you do have a program going on, are there ways to improve?  I know we or should I say I recycle, but I’m not sure if my kids truly understand why we recycle.  You can also talk to them about saving energy, turning off lights, turning down the heat and A/C. This is a great week to have that talk and make them aware.  Awareness really is what it’s all about.

Get outside and enjoy the WORLD we live in!  The Tulip Festival @ Thanksgiving Point

and the Bulbs and Bloom Festival @ Red Butte Garden are both AMAZING.  Talk about the flowers and how they grow, how volunteers plant these each year so we can ENJOY their beauty.

There’s no better place than Red Butte Garden to celebrate Arbor Day! As Utah’s very own Arboretum, they can’t wait to share their knowledge about the wonderful world of trees with you. Join them for a fun day of family activities and interactive Exploration Stations throughout the Garden and take home a small tree to plant in your own yard!

Arbor Day is a Free-Admission Day thanks to Salt Lake County Voters and Zoo, Arts and Parks (ZAP).

So there you have it, a slew of easy, but fun ways to celebrate Earth and Arbor day.
