San Bernardino, CAUSA

We decorated 25 bags!

About our project: Instead of the grocery bags, my class created bookmarks. With a delay in motor skills it was simpler for my kids to color in all the white in a smaller space of a bookmark. I find some free templates online I simply print out on cardstock then cut the bookmarks out. After the coloring was completed I laminated them and we passed them out at our school library.

Brooklyn Park, MNUSA

We decorated 139 bags!

About our project: We are an educational child care! We thought it would be great to do this activity as a whole school. The teachers in each classroom introduced the idea to their students and then worked together with them to create their "Save the Earth" bags! All the students were able to create their own, even the 1 and 2 year olds! This was a great way to introduce Earth Day and brought up good conversation in all the classrooms! Thank you for the opportunity.

Karen Schulz
Lake Harriet Community School
Minneapolis, MNUSA

We decorated 72 bags!

About our project: As part of an Earth Day Party at Lake Harriet Community School in Minneapolis, one 2nd grade classroom took part in the Earth Day Groceries Project. We contacted our local co-op, The Linden Hills Co-op, who was very enthusiastic and excited about the project. They donated all of the paper grocery bags for the project and took part in a photo op when a group of children returned to the store with the decorated grocery bags. Tip: We printed out several Earth Day clip art images to help get the children's creative juices flowing. This really seemed to help. The class had a great time and are very excited to be part of such a wonderful world wide event!

We decorated 82 bags!

About our project: We are a small school with students facing various life challenges. Offering students the opportunity to practice giving to others helps them to look beyond their problems and know they can make a difference in their world. This is a simple project that gives us the chance to have a direct impact on our greater community. It was a great success for our kids!
