Earth Day is coming up next weekend. Do you do anything special with your children or families? I remember as a student, for Earth and Arbor Day celebrations, bringing home a sapling and asking my parents to plant it. I knew that planting a tree could help our planet. Today when I go to my childhood home to visit my parents, I see a couple decades old pine trees and can’t help but smile. If you would like to help educate your children about this great planet of ours, but without the long term tree commitment, may I suggest checking out some amazing toys from Learning Resources.
If you are looking for some fun toys to keep your kiddos engaged all the while helping them learn, check these out!
