In many climates, it’s the month that really starts to feel like spring. Earth Day also falls in April.
Here are some things you can try with your child:
Compare plants. Your child may not know that some plants produce flowers, some produce vegetables, and others produce fruits. Point out different types of plants and talk about what they produce.
Talk some trash. What happens to things after we throw them away? Show your child a garbage truck and explain that it is hauling trash away to a big dump called a landfill. Talk about some things that we can do to keep landfills from getting too full, such as recycling.
Watch the birds. Children are interested in the different colors of birds, the nests they build and the way they fly. They’ll also enjoy feeding the birds. Peanut butter and bird seed will attract several different kinds of birds.
