Plant A Garden
"Every year my daughters and I start seeds together, and our little baby plants are going into the ground this weekend!Ā GardeningĀ together is tons of fun and givesĀ me so many opportunities to teach my girls. Not only about things like compost, the environment and healthy eating, but also goal setting and responsibility! Don't be intimidated...even a small pot of herbs or a few tomato plants tucked into the corner of a landscaping bed will give you and your kids hours of enjoyment." - Jenna

Nature-Inspired Yoga Poses
"My kids loveĀ this deck of yoga cards. A flexible way to celebrateĀ EarthĀ DayĀ is practicingĀ nature-inspired poses, like tree or mountain, and this pack even has a ā€˜Nature Kidsā€™ pose." -Nikki

Start Composting
"Here in California, as of January 1, we are required to compost. I was always intimidated by compostingĀ but now I love it! Instead of throwing your food scraps and leftovers into the trashĀ (and with kids there is PLENTY), just toss them into a bin that conveniently sits on your counter.Ā We use this oneĀ and I boughtĀ these compostable bagsĀ to line it. Once full, it goes in our green yard waste binĀ (we don't have a garden toĀ use it in). I notice my trash takes longer to get full and never smells badly anymore. My kids love it too and they are proud to be able to independently help!ā€ -Shannon

Create Art with Scraps
"This is something we do all the time, and the options are endless. We repurpose paper scraps forĀ collages,Ā reuse old toilet paper tubes for sculptures, andĀ our favorite...turning cardboard boxes into elaborate forts! Have lots of broken crayons? Check out ourĀ last blog postĀ on how to make them brand new again!" -Jenna

Do A Spring Clean
"Reorganize your kidsā€™ drawers and pass down Clover pieces theyā€™ve outgrown to younger siblings, family, or friends. Donate anything leftover to local shelters. You'd be surprised how much fun toddlers think it is to pull everything out of their drawers!" -Nikki

Go Paperless
"This is a simple way to preserve trees and something we do at Clover with our electronic receipts. It doesn't happen overnight but making a small effort to transition your paper bills into electronic onesĀ  adds up over time." -Shannon
