    Gaze upon the stars     Download Google’s Sky Map app for Android phones or Vito Technology’s Star Walk app for iPhones. Then explore nearby constellations together. Discuss how one star looks tiny but is actually huge and how, like a star, one act of kindness to our Earth seems small but makes a big difference.

    Build birdhouse or bird feeder     Share your home with all of the Earth’s creatures by building a birdhouse or bird feeder out of recycled materials, such as an old cardboard box or milk jug, to help out your local avian population.

    Craft a nature collage     Celebrate Earth Day this year by making an all-natural art collage with things you’ve found in nature, like leaves, pressed flowers, pieces of bark and other small items. Collect items while you’re out for a hike or exploring your local nature trail.

    Spread the love    Make and decorate Earth Day cards using recycled materials. Include an Earth Day celebration tip, and send them to friends and family. Make an Earth Day poster to display in your window.

    Watch the clouds.   Lie on a blanket or cuddle on a stoop as you hunt for hippos, lizards, and lions. Afterward, visit CleanAir.org together to discover simple things your family can do to keep our skies blue.

    Go on a nature scavenger hunt   Learn about local flora and fauna this Earth Day by searching for flowers, plants and trees native to your region around your neighborhood.
