Toilet Paper Roll Bird Feeder: Head to your local hardware store and grab some bird seed to make these easy (and functional!) bird feeders to hang in your yard.

Earth Day Activity Pack: Real Life at Home offers an amazing Earth Day activity pack complete with word searches, coloring pages, bingo cards and much, much more. And it's FREE! Download it here.
Go on a Nature Walk: This is the ultimate last-minute activity that requires zero prep work. If it's sunny and nice, head on a walk at your local park, on a trail, or even just around your neighborhood. Point on the trees, bushes, grass, butterflies, anything you can find. Talk with your kids about the Earth and bring their attention to how beautiful nature is all around them!
Read an Earth Day Book: Head to your local library with this list of Earth Day books and see if you can find any to check out and read!
Make an Earth Day Themed Lunch: You've got to feed everyone anyways, so might as well have fun with it! Gina Kirk makes these ants on the logs and lady bug sandwiches that are darling, healthy and easy to make.
