Last Saturday, April 13th, we went to Palo Alto to celebrate and volunteer at the Earth Day Ride & Drive. It was a great event to go with the girls, play, dance, eat, and learn about recycling, and also to spread the word about electric vehicles (EVs).
Earth Day activities for the children
There were a bunch of activities for children of all ages, plus the weather was great so hanging out, playing, running, and dancing with the live music felt just great.
I liked the games to learn about the planet and win prizes (we got a timer for the shower that Mar loves, so we’ll be saving some water from now on :)), and also the quizzes for the adults.
The older kids could participate in the runs (10k and 5k) and there was also a shorter race for the youngest.
Another cool activity for the older kids was the guided bird walk. Looking forward to doing something like this with my girls in a few years!
Here’s the full schedule of the morning:
Last but not least, the city of Palo Alto offered some awesome entertainment for the youngest: a real fire truck and a police truck where you could go in and check out by yourselves.
