Here are some more ideas on what you can do to celebrate Earth Day:
Contact Your Librarian to show me what you are doing for Earth Day.
Even though some of my garden plants are starting to grow, it is still a bit early to plant new ones. I decided to use some leftover CDs and garden stakes to make colourful flowers for my garden. This is also a good "re-use" project for Earth Day!
What are some things you have been doing? Send me drawings or photos of your projects through the Contact Your Librarian page.
Here is another precept that I think fits well with what is happening in the world right now:
I am only one,
But still I am one.
I cannot do everything,
But still I can do something;
And because I cannot do everything,
I will not refuse to do the something that I can do.

The difference between ordinary and extraordinary is that little extra.
