“We are helping to keep Mother Earth neat and clean”
It is important to mark Earth Day in a way that takes form in the developmental stage of all children who still feel at one with all the elements. Children feel at one with all of nature.
|Listening to a Lakota Story of Mother Earth|
Children completely sense nature with all the twelve senses.
|Cleaning around their school area|
Appreciation and groundwork is laid in the youngest years by just being outside and taking it all in. Allowing them to be a part of nature and showing them the importance of keeping nature clean.
|Helping each other|
When you model recycling, reducing spending, and reusing things, your child will follow you. This affords the small child a positive way to help keep Mother Earth clean.
|Enjoying this Beautiful Earth day with lunch on the deck.|
Celebrations in Waldorf for small children are about the doing, not so much the words. We had a wonderful time this Earth Day by doing, creating, and being.
