Earth Day is around the corner and what better way to celebrate than to help your kids be conservationists in small ways. This resource will help your child become a conservationist by building a pollinator habitat.
Do you know that there have been numerous reports stating that there is a decline of honeybees and other pollinators? It is pretty scary to think about it. Think of what will happen to vegetation if there is a huge decrease in pollinators?
Well, its springtime and there is no better time to build a pollinator habitat with your homeschoolers than now. You can help your kids have a love of nature and explain just why they should appreciate the Creation all around them.
Your kiddos can start building a pollinator habitat to learn about the many aspects of conservation – yes, even in your own backyard. Even if you have limited space in your home or do not have a back yard, you can begin your habitat by growing four or five plants on a patio, window sill, or balcony in your home.
Did you know that there are several types of pollinators, including some you didn’t even think could be pollinators?
Here are a few pollinators in our environment:
- honey bees
- carpenter bees
- bumble bees
- even bats!
Help your child build a pollinator habitat in your home to help the environment one family at a time with some guidance from The Usual Mayhem.
