Earth Day Crafting

I’m thinking we may have a handle on the rat and mite situation here. We’ve had pest control here and tree guys will be here tomorrow to trim back possible “pest” homes. Plus, we’ve been keeping ourselves covered in tea tree oil and peppermint to deter any bugs. And my house is as spotless as its ever been, so that’s a plus as well. Funny enough though, I’m feeling bad about the rat traps and the trimming of trees (one tree has to come down because it’s leaning on a neighbor’s wall causing it to break). Especially with all of this happening during April and around Earth Day. So yesterday we tried to envelope ourselves in nature and enjoy some nature crafting as well. We spent the morning at the park under a tree, with earthy books and pen and paper. I got the chance to paint a bit while Ellie played and then in the afternoon we made clay beads by pressing our bits of nature into them. It was a quiet, nice Earth Day. Something we both needed. How did you spend Earth Day?

  1. I am so happy to hear you have things under control, huge sigh of relief I am sure.

    Sounds like a lovely Earth Day. Reece had his nature program yesterday, so he celebrated with the group in the woods, and from what I understand they had a great day! We will spend some time this weekend with garbage bags in hand picking up the trash along the side of our country roads, something we do every year around Earth Day.

    Those clay imprints are a huge hit around here 🙂

  2. I love the clay imprints too, we’ll have to try that. Can’t even imagine the pest issue, so glad that is over for you!

    We planted a tree on Sunday, a bit in advance for Earth Day. We had to cut down a three story black walnut that died in a blight and it was so sad. But our new little apple tree will be exciting to grow with.
