Earth Day is a day for us to reflect on our planet and think about the importance of treating Mother Earth with kindness and respect.

For my 6-year old son… it’s a day he gets to pound his hammer.

Yes… as the world thinks about how we can treat Earth more softly… my son will be hitting nails into wood as hard as he can.

His kindergarten class is building birdhouses in honour of earth day; a noble idea.

Hopefully in between swings… I can teach him a thing or two about the real reason why we mark Earth Day.
