How to Teach Children about the Environment Playfully 

The Earth has been through a lot in recent times and children are our only hope to keep it in one piece after we’re gone. It’s never too early to start teaching your children to respect nature and care for the environment. In fact, you have to do this because the world doesn’t stand a chance if you don’t. 

While Kids can get excited about nature, you’re going to bore them with all your dry talk of “carbon footprints” and “single-use plastics”. To really keep them interested in saving the planet, you’ve got to keep things playful. 

Remember that kids don’t care about statistics, government policies, and scientific reports. And so you need to teach them in a way that doesn’t bore them to sleep (and make them hate the subject of environmental protection altogether). 

Here are some cool ways you can teach children about the environment: 

1. Plant a Garden

Planting a garden is a fun way to teach children about the environment while getting them to participate. Kids love any excuse to go outdoors and get their hands dirty, so this will be easy. 

While they play, you can teach them about sustainable living. You can choose to plant a backyard or a community garden for this exercise. 

It’s okay if you don’t have a lot of space to create one. You can plant a small garden on any spot in your yard that gets good sunlight. There’s also the option of settling for a small potted plant if you have no hope for a garden at all. Things don’t have to be perfect. 

The general idea is to get your kids to care for nature and watch something grow. If you need help creating a garden, there are tons of DIY tutorials, and small garden hacks available online. 

Your kids will be blown away by how the earth provides food, and they’ll develop an appreciation for nature at a young age. As they watch their garden grow, you can sneak in lessons on photosynthesis, plant needs, soil composition, and different vegetation.

Eco Friendly Packaging Ideas

Caring for the environment has been a hot topic since I can remember but the new generation is definitely more in tune with what is going on in our planet thanks to the internet and how fast information can travel. Protecting our environment has never been so mainstream as it is today. “Gen Z” (mid-to-late 1990s as starting birth years and the early 2010s as ending birth years) is fierce, fearless and very vocal about their beliefs and the world has been quick to try and keep up and adjust to their urgent demands.
