April is the fourth month of the calendar year, the first of four months to have a length of 30 days and the second of five months to have a length of less than 31 days. Even more importantly than all these tidbits? April is the month when we celebrate Earth Day, a little homage to the planet we call home.
Earth Day is a chance to celebrate Mother Nature and become a steward of the environment. Are you wondering what you can do with children aged 1-101 to celebrate Earth Day? Wonder no more! On Sunday, April 22nd, consider taking a photo scavenger hunt in celebration of Earth Day.
Equipment you’ll need:
-A buddy, a partner, a friend — because it’s more fun to do things together
-A camera — this can be anything that can take & record the image (camera on your phone)
-This list of 20 things (below)
-Take the list below with you.
-Find someone to pal around with for the day, the afternoon or even just 30 minutes.
-Seek out the things that are thriving in nature.
-Take a photo of your item.
-Think you’ve got all 20? Tag us on Instagram (#barbarabellphotography AND #southernneighbor AND #EarthDay2018).
