The Arbor Day Foundation promotes the planting, nurturing, and the celebrating of trees. Ways to celebrate is by visiting our local Botanical Gardens, Arboretums, and Nature Preserves. Want to have fun with your kids today? We have some fun craft ideas to help educate our kids about the importance of trees.
Take a walk through nature and get some beautiful pictures, today. Your kids will love looking at the flowers and trees, looking for birds and other animals and of course spending the day outside on beautiful Long Island. Where will you visit?

One of my favorite books is The Lorax by Dr. Seuss. We made grass friends to look like the Lorax. (how cute are they?) We love this little guy because he , “speaks for the trees.”
