(Coffee filter globes, you find tutorial here )
Can you believe it is the fourth week of spring? For the past few weeks, my daughters and I have been working on a number of Earth Day projects.
Yesterday, was our annual park clean up. I have been participating in these sort of clean ups for about ten years. It is a great way to meet people who live in your neighbourhood, I highly recommend it!
Our park is pretty special – you can (sort of) see the size from the photo below - the park covers a large city block (splash pad and pool, ice rink, playground, two diamonds, a soccer pitch, and a fenced in dog park - a community garden has recently opened as well). Everyone takes on a small section. After pitching in, there was a marshmallow roast and cocoa at the fire pit as well as other activities.
This month, we also built some bird feeders at a Home Depot workshop. Glittery boots and a hammer.
The feeders are being enjoyed by
feathered furry friends.
Our pansies are planted….
and our snails have returned which makes my younger daughter really happy.
Happy Earth Day,
