Save The Lions
This morning Maddie and I took our Earth Walk early (we are due for MORE rain this afternoon) and spent our time picking up trash and talking about keeping the earth clean for the animals. Maddie said we have to pick up trash to 'save the lions!' I don't think we have any lions roaming around in Southeastern Connecticut but if we do and they stumble upon our street it happens to be a nice clean place to take a nap today!
Maddie was more enthusiastic about picking up trash than I imagined, she was even perfectly fine walking past the playground without an inkling of a whine!
When we got home we spent a little time admiring the beautiful flowers that have bloomed in our yard. Even though we have been stuck inside the last few days the rain has done wonderful things for my gardens!
With all this rainy weather we were able to get a few Earth Week activities done earlier this week.
Michelle at Her Cup Overfloweth posted this awesome Keep Our Earth Sparkling craft that we made on recycled cardboard with daddy this past weekend.
We also made this cute coffee filter earth that I found at The Idea Box.
