Tiny Tots Plant Saplings on Earth Day

It is never too early to start teaching children value of the environment and importance of keeping surroundings clean. Erth Day, which is celebrated on April 22, gives parents and teachers an opportunity to imbibe qualities of conservationist in children.
Generally, preschool and kindergarten children are taught about fire safety, personal hygiene, dental health etc; but teaching them respect of our planet is equally important. Most importantly, at this stage awareness about conservation of resources holds utmost importance. So, concept of 3 R’s- reduce, reuse, and recycle should be introduced.
To do the same, Mother’s Pride recently celebrated Earth Day in all its branches. Various activities were held on the occasion like plant a sapling, water the plants, storytelling about tree, air and water, fancy dress competition, skit etc. Another interesting activity was that - preschoolers were asked to draw a picture of what Earth meant to them. Through these events, toddlers learned about the environment, planet pals and value of trees. Children learnt that one should plant more trees as they are our best friends. It was enriching experience for kids.
While preschool children are young to understand abstract concepts like global warming etc, one can still make effort to engender their ecological consciousness by educating them to save water , turn off lights , take care of trees and pets etc.
