Captain Planet Earth Day Party
Since sending a paper invitation for an Earth Day party seems a little, I don’t know, off, we think e-vites and Facebook events are the perfect picks to help you gather your group. Send them to your besties and tell ‘em to bring a friend. Why not make a few new BFFs while you’re at it, eh?
For your munchies, stick with delicious whole foods. Browse the produce section of your grocery store in take your buds to a local farmer’s market to pick up the day’s eats. We’re loving fresh berries, crisp carrots, apples, bananas, celery—you name it! Whip up a veggie dip, put out some cheese ‘n’ crackers (or some delish country-style bread) and grab some before it’s all gone.
The great outdoors
Whatever you do, you’ve gotta get your girls outside. Pack a lunch and go for a hike at a local state park, climb trees in the backyard, throw a picnic on the lawn—whatever you do, it’s time to soak up some warm spring sunshine and reconnect with Mother Nature. She is pretty fab, ya know.
Weather forecast not so hot? ‘Tis the season for April showers! A light drizzle can make for an awesome dance party. Give your guests a heads-up before they arrive and take your group outdoors to rock out in the rain. Plug in a stereo in the garage or crack a window and bust a move in the driveway or back yard.
Set out used milk jugs, grocery bags, empty cans and other recyclable products you can find and save around the house. Give your guests and time limit—think 20 to 30 mins, max—and see who can create the best sculpture of them all.
