World Environment Day is celebrated every year on 5th June since 1974 to address pressing issues related to the environment such as deforestation, global warming, water pollution and so on. Every year, engaging governments, important businesses and the citizens meet in an effort to address the important issues pertaining to the environment.
It’s no secret that our planet needs our help more than ever. Did you know that every three seconds, the world loses enough forest area to cover a football ground? Or the fact that it is believed that up to 90% of the coral reefs could be lost by 2050? The destruction that's happening is proof that we're leaving a horrific world behind for generations to come. So, let’s make a pledge to do whatever it is in our hands to protect our beautiful environment. It can be something as basic as not using plastic ever again. After all, a small change goes a long way!
With that being said, here are some Environment Day activities we can all participate in.
Below, we are sharing some easy but effective Environment Day activities that you must try this year. After all, we owe it to the past and future generations.
This year, let’s make a bird house without destroying our ecosystem in any form.
Step 1: Take an old shoebox and make a big hole in it on one side.
Step 2: Next, use the scissors to cut off the big hole properly.
Step 3: Finally, take a long and sturdy string and tape it on all four sides and your DIY birdhouse is ready to be hanged.
Hang it near your house and make sure you fill it with bird seeds to enjoy those beautiful beaky creatures.
We often just throw away the food items we no longer need but did you know that what you consider waste can replace chemical fertilizers?
Here’s what you should do:
We all love it when the word ‘recycle’ is used as a part of the product packaging, right? But, what have we done to be a rightful part of it?
Don’t throw away your old products, recycle them. Collect multiple bins and store your things, such as plastic containers, clothes, old perfume bottles and give them for recycling. Once you form this as a regular habit, you are going to love doing this.
Also, there are a lot of companies that accept old clothes, beauty containers and so on. Make sure you use those amazing services and bring a healthy change! Donating to the poor is always appreciated.
Step 1: In a big bowl, add strips of an old newspaper and let it sit for a few hours.
Step 2: Once you see the paper turning all mushy, it’s your cue to separate it from the water.
Step 3: Add the wet, gooey parer to another bowl and add some seeds into it. You can also add some food colouring (make sure it's not synthetic) for an interesting twist.
Step 4: After mixing everything together, it’s time to turn it into interesting shapes.
Once the shapes are all dried up, use it to stick on cards or gifts as they add the much-needed personal elements. The receiver can quickly crush the seed shape and plant it in their garden!
World Environment Day is the perfect day to spread awareness about the environment via some fun activities. If you are looking for ideas on how to celebrate World Environment Day to make the rightful change, then you have to try these World Environment Day games.
The game is pretty self-explanatory, right? You can play this with your group of friends, with your kids or even over zoom calls as it is really fun. Make sure you maintain the scores ‘coz mazaa tabhi aayega!
Tell your competitors one truth and two lies and it’s their job to figure which one is the fact. After everyone is done guessing, reveal the right answer and also share some important facts about the truth!
Step 1: Take 5 stones and draw X on them using one colour. Make sure you use a light coloured stone so that it’s easier to draw on it.
Step 2: Do the same on the remaining stones but this time, draw O and with a different colour.
Step 3: Leave the stones to dry for two hours and your tic tac toe gottis are now ready!
Just draw the tic tac toe format using the chalk and get, set, play!
We all love to pose among flowers, don’t we? Well, why not create a floral paradise in your own backyard? Call your friends and ask them to come prepared as it’s game time. In a bowl add some flower seeds and set it on a table with other essentials such as flower pots, scalpel among other things.
The game is to see who can properly plant the maximum number of seeds in under 15 minutes. Yes, so much fun! You can also continue this game for a longer duration to see whose plant grows first and that person shall be the ultimate winner.
Another great way to bond with friends is to take a trip down memory lane by doing a mini arts & crafts workshop. On a table, gather all the art supplies like colourful papers, loose glitter, glue, pairs of scissors, sequins and so on.
Choose a random DIY project on YouTube and the person who comes close to the actual thing under a specific time wins the grand prize.
