Earth Day Parade

When Earth Day rolls around on April 22, gather your friends for an Earth Day parade. It's a great way to show your support for the environment, and you might even encourage some adults to become Earth-friendly!

What You'll Need:

Bicycles

Newspaper streamers

Recycled cloth strips

Bottle caps

Twigs, branches, leaves, pinecones

Decorate your bicycles, your wagons, your dogs, and yourself with newspaper streamers, strips of recycled cloth, bottle-cap noisemakers -- anything you can string together using recycled goods.

Make sure you ask your parents to take plenty of pictures. Then write to your local newspaper about your private parade. Next year, you might wind up featured in the newspapers you recycle!

Be sure to clean up after you're done -- and remember to save the leftover materials for next year's parade.
