April 22 is Earth Day. Celebrate the Earth with your nanny kids by having a Earth Day treat and celebration. Today is the perfect day to encourage the kids to recycle, not litter, turn of lights, conserve water, and walk to activities. Be sure to do our fun Earth Day project, read children’s books about Earth Day, and share these festive cookies to celebrate our environment. Here’s how we made these Earth Day cookies:
