Earth Day Photos

by Easy, age 7, Seven Valleys, Pennsylvania, USA

This is a beautiful little garden growing with lush flowers and grasses. It's even a habitat for a little red snake. Perfect creation for Earth Day, I love that the photo was taken outside on your own dew covered grass. Awesome Easy!

by Justin, age 11, Seven Valleys, Pennsylvania, USA.

The sign says, "Don't be a glacier, and save the nature (meaning do something to save nature)."

What a great scene you've made here. I just love the sign. It looks as though the wild creatures are holding their own little Earth Day demonstration for us humans to take note of. Great addition to your creation by taking the photo outside, it really adds a wonderful element of nature to it.

"Bird House" by Will, age 5, Selah, Washington, USA.

"Birds need more houses."

What a cool bird house. If I were a bird, I would want this to be my house. I love that it even looks like a bird too. Great reminder that we could all put out a bird house for our flying friends! Superb Will!

"Picking up Trash" by Casey, age 8, Selah, Washington, USA.

"Picking up trash is important everyday."

How great to see a crew out cleaning up this beautiful looking space. You've made me want to go outside and pick up some litter in my own neighborhood. Thanks Casey!

"Garden of the Earth" by Simon, age 7, Saskatchewan, Canada.

"It's a garden that helps the Earth. There are flowers, trees, shrubs and bushes all giving us oxygen. To me Earth Day means not littering, planting trees and flowers and helping the Earth."

This is a beautiful, lush space you've created. It makes me want to take a stroll through it and breathe in all the wonderful smells. Lots of green space to celebrate the Earth on. Nice work Simon!

"Clean the Earth" by Sophie, age 5, Saskatchewan, Canada.

"A river and grass and lots and lots of litter. There is a Stormtrooper picking up garbage. To me Earth Day means helping the Earth."

Wow, what a lot of litter scattered about. How great that this Stormtrooper has taken it upon himself to clean up other people's garbage. If we all just picked up after ourselves, we'd have a very happy Earth! Wonderful Sophie!

by Lennon, age 10, Ontario, Canada.

"Lennon's favourite gift from the Earth is a flower garden. (I really love that there's a pirate tending a flower)"

This is such a beautiful, colourful garden. I love that there are many people working in it. It looks like a quiet, peaceful place. How amazing that you call gardens "gifts from the Earth"! The Earth laughs in flowers. Great creation Lennon!

by Islove, age 3, Ontario, Canada.

"This is a big flying bird animal."

Beautiful creature Islove! I love his outstretched wings. The more critters the better, especially flying bird animals! Way to go Islove!

by Faenin, age 5, Ontario, Canada.

"This is a kangaroo pushing a stroller."

I love this because it seems so funny that a kangaroo, who has a pouch for carrying her baby, would be using a stroller. So cute, funny and well built. Great creation Faenin!

by Ethan, age 8, Saskatchewan, Canada.

"It's a recycling plant. It takes old junk, which gets crushed up by a hammer, and then sent down the track into the giant fire, and out comes new things. Then the water cools it down. It's run on the power crystals located at the corner of the base."

What a fabulous recycling factory you've built! I love that there are different processes that happen and in the end something totally new is made! Great thinking Ethan, and perfect design for Earth day!

by Michael, age 5, Saskatchewan, Canada.

"It's an earth-friendly recycling factory. It grinds up stuff from the big saw; melts it down in the big heater (there's also a little fire blower at the side). It's a recycling machine, sort of like my brother's. And it's run on power crystals."

That is one deadly looking saw, I bet it grinds up all sorts interesting things. I love that this factory cuts and melts things people don't want anymore. But best of all, the fact that it's earth-friendly! This is great Michael.

by Isaac, age 5, Saskatchewan, Canada.

"This is Isaac's solar-powered rainforest village. The vehicles and homes are all solar-powered (they all have flat panels on top). Can you see the propeller beside the door of the straw-bale house? That's a windmill. There's a couple cruising the swamp in a little black and white boat. The names of the vehicles are, from left to right: Bumper Man, Crocodile-in-the-Swamp, Bumpermaran, Swampadrive, Bulldozer-Fordo, Rover/flying-space-object (it is kinda like a spaceship that drives on Mars), Dangerous Swamp driver (warns people about the dangerous crocodile in the swamp and that people in the motorboat have to be very careful to go around the crocodile.)"

Firstly I'd like to tell everyone looking at this to click on the image so you can see it larger. There is so much detail here that needs a closer look! Rainforest, solar-power, windmill, straw-bale house! What an amazing super-charged Earth friendly landscape you have created. I like all the amazing details and different areas you've created. Too cool Isaac!

by Kiera, age 3, Saskatchewan, Canada.

"This is a pack of Killersauruses that lived on Earth. Killersaurus is a dinosaur that starts with "K". Their leader is a teenager names Susan. They have babies."

What a wonderful pack of meat eating dinosaurs! I love that they have little babies with them and they are staying so close to the grown ups. How cool that this dinosaur's names starts with the same letter as your name! I think it's so cool that their leader is a teenager! Wonderful creation Kiera!
