Teach My Child to Be Environmentally Friendly

Being green is a way of life.  In order to teach our children to be environmentally friendly, we as a family need to adopt eco-friendly habits.  

How can I Teach My Child to Be Environmentally Friendly: Use reusable bags, compost, recycle, garden and MORE!

What does being green mean to us? 

Well, I asked my 5 year old this question this morning.  Although I know that she could list off to me the things that we do to be "Eco Friendly," I instead handed her the camera and asked her to SHOW me the things we do to be green.  She was SO excited for the challenge and got to work right away. It is exciting to look at everyday tasks through an environmentally friendly lens!  Here are some of the pictures she took.

  1. I love that you gave her the camera and she was able to find all of these things. I'm so proud of your 5 year old and how much she already knows about living environmentally friendly! Keep up the great work Mama!

    1. Thanks Kim! We have talked a lot about it at our house =) Her picures were so much fun too look at and most were surprisingly in focus! It was nice that her school last year reinforced the same concepts too!
