Eco Friendly Toddlers - 26 Days and A to Z Resources

Toddlers (in general) go through hundreds of paper towels, unravel rolls of toilet paper, use up laundry soap like it's going out of style, and bring in more dirt than they protect. However, teaching toddlers about the enviroment and how to help out can be fun! Recycling those paper towel and toilet paper tubes, planting trees and flowers, making nature jars, and 'releasing bugs' back into the wild are all great ways to get little minds thinking about big world problems. Here's a list of eco friendly toddler activities to start with:

1. Eco Friendly Kids
This site has a huge list of activites to do with toddlers and older children. Some of their ideas make me giddy! Some of them are a bit above toddler age but they coudl easily be 'scaled down'. Check out all the activities here.

2. Eco Kids
Another awesome site with dozens of activities, discussion topics and more! Check out the site and all the fun ways to get involved in recycling, re-using, understanding, and thinking about the planet!

4. Discovery Kids
Did you know that the Animal Planet and Discovery channel have teamed up to launch the Discovery Kids network and website? Hundreds of articles, projects, videos, topics and more! Learn about topics such as allergies, acid rain, and more. Then learn what you can do to help! Go here and check it out, my kids also love some of the games that teach fun earth science facts!

  2. This is so much better than just having them watch Captain Planet.

    Dropping by from A to Z. It's my first year participating.
