Teaching toddlers the importance of trees

The best way to teach kids about the importance of trees is to demonstrate eco-friendliness by example. If they see you planting trees and caring for the environment, they will value the idea. Make it a point to plant trees and take care of plants, this will get your child involved in caring for plants, trees and our environment.

I've introduced my bunny to collecting seeds that have fallen down from the trees 🌲🌳🌴 and we will plant them into saplings.

Research suggests that lasting attitudes towards nature and the environment form in the first few years of a child’s life; hence instilling environmental awareness in very young children is a challenge and an exciting opportunity for parents.  Experiences in nature in early childhood have  shown to contribute to environmental awareness.

Trees are an important part of our world. They provide wood for building and pulp for making paper. They provide homes for insects, birds and other animals. Trees breathe in carbon dioxide and breathe out oxygen purifying the air we breathe.
Teaching the importance of trees at an early age helps them to understand the importance of trees right from the very start.
