Spanish Earth Day phrases for kids to use as they talk about protecting the planet.

Earth Day is April 22nd, and these Spanish phrases remind us of ways we can take care of the planet. They can be written or printed on the reverse side of anything you no longer need – homework, letters from school, junk mail, envelopes or cardboard from cereal boxes. You can use them as reminders to hang around the house, bookmarks to share with a friend or with pictures in a collage to brighten up a room.

The printable of the phrases has no pictures, just the Spanish text. Kids can add borders, drawings or decorate them for any number of projects. Of course, there are many more things that we can all do to protect the planet. Be sure to help kids add their own ideas to the list.
