To enter: Have your child write a slogan or poem about living green and post it as a comment to this post by Wednesday, February 27, 2008!
Living as commercial-free as we possibly can, my six-year-old daughter didn’t really understand what a slogan was when I explained it to her. She was stumped at writing one; however, she is just learning about poetry in first grade. Sure, I have read to her Langston Hughes and Shel Silverstein, but I don’t think that she has ever written a poem before. This is her very first poem, and she wrote it without any assistance from me (other than dictating it for me to write).
I like recycling;
I like good food
and my bicycle too.

and yarn too.
Plastic is bad;
I don’t like it much.

I know this is rather lame, but when asking my 4 year old daughter she said,”Trees are green and nice!” Really that’s it…she’s my oldest so I didn’t even ask the 2 year old! Thanks and sorry I suppose!

My 5 yr old said “My teacher says if you’re nice to the planet, the planet will be nice too. And teachers always have to tell the truth!”
Kids…simple, but genius!

That’s great Susan, no need to apologize. That is why we are selecting the winner at random, so that age is not a factor in deciding the winner.

Tonya Denmark says
My 4 year old said “We recycle because we recycle.” That’s his logic on most things!

From my 4-year old: “Trees are pretty. Don’t cut them down. Let them grow.”
Julie Mead says
My 3 year old says “trees have leaves and branches and grow grow grow, so don’t cut them down”
well, don’t know if this will count since my dd is only 10 mo. old, but I am sure she would say “my bum only takes cloth diapers!”

My two year old said “trees pretty”. I say “lets keep them that way”.

My daughter says “Green is my favorite” – I think she doesn’t really know what the heck I’m talking about yet about the environment, but she loves to color!
Over the course of a walk in the woods and through our yard, my three year old daughter said this:
Oh mama isn’t it beautiful?
I like berries to pick and eat.
oh and our apple tree is nice to me.
I like that too.”
“Mom the world is Green and Blue, I want it to stay that way.” Out of the mouth of My 5yo daughter after watching Planet Earth.
“Sun, grass, trees, birds, snow. Play outside. Go!” says 2-year old Cobin
Connor is too old to write a poem.. but we would love to have the gift pack to use for when my cousins come visit as I’m sure they are tired of playing with baby toys.
I blogged you too
My 5 year old daughter Nevaeh says “We should be respectful to the earth and take care of it. The earth is good to us and it is a great place to live.
Kendra Holliday says
My 7 yr old sang this song to me that she learned from her Jewish school:
“Let’s plant a tree. Oh let’s water it, oh let’s water it. Trees are blowing in the wind, whoosh! Look at the leaves, the leaves are so much bigger now. Look at the trunk. Because it’s T’Bishvat. ”
Then she said, “People are cutting down too many woods and trees, and endangering habitats. And quite recently, there was a forest cut down near my house, and deer came up in our yard, which never happened before. They lost their home and have nowhere to go, so some people are endangering these creature’s lives and habitats.”
I asked, “Aren’t you glad to see the deer in your yard?”
She said, “Well it depends on how the deer feel about it.”
Jennifer Barr says
My 6 year old says:
the sky is blue, the trees are green, keep the earth fresh & clean 🙂
“Green like a frog and a tree leaf. I love green. It’s blue and yellow together and next to both in the rainbow. We should save rainbows. Yay!” My daughter is 5.
Tricia McCammack says
My 3 year old said, “God made the trees and we shouldn’t cut them down.”
My son is only 7 months but already loves to play with papers(and I’m sure he would love some pencils).
My 9 year old says “Green, it’s my favorite.”
Thanks for the giveaway, and good luck to all.
