Earth Day!

On Wednesday, I took some time with the kids to talk about Earth Day! We talked about how we need to take care of the earth and how! As a family we are going to paint and start some recycling bins that the kids can get involved in! We did a few crafts and colored a coloring page. We also read in Genesis 1 where God talks about creating us (human beings) to rule over and be responsible for the earth. We also sang "He's got the whole world in His hands" and made Jello dirt cups to bring to gma and gpa's for dessert! The kids had a great time smashing all the oreos with wooden spoons:)The kids made earths by painting their hands green and making prints on a blue piece of construction paper.
We had a great Earth day and I kept it simple so that I could build on it next year! Thank you Lord for creating such a beautiful Earth and help us to take the job you charged us with in the beginning of time seriously!
