Earth Day Party

I’m so delighted to share a fun little Earth Day Party my kids and I threw for a handful of friends! What do you think about when Earth Day is mentioned? Some think of recycling and others think about planting a tree. Earth Day is April 22nd, and I’ve partnered with Tom’s of Maine to share this Earth Day party with you.
