It is Planet Earth’s birthday today…. Let’s celebrate by belonging to it.


Earth is the only planet with chocolates and children! That is because it is blessed with life- insects, trees, birds, animals and especially humans. Humans are searching for life forms on other planets and in this search have forgotten to take care of what we already have- Planet Earth, a living breathing planet that has water and air and food.

But many people have woken up to face the reality about the kind of world we want to leave for our children and grandchildren and have initiated a day on which we can remember and acknowledge the importance of this wonderful planet and strive to treasure and save it. The world now marks Earth Day to make the human race realize the importance of the Mother Earth. Earth Day is celebrated every year on the 22nd of April. In 1970, a senator from Wisconsin, USA, Gaylord Nelson first conceived of this day.

More than just remembering or acknowledging the wonder of Planet Earth on this special day it is important we teach our kids and ourselves to ‘belong’ to this planet. And to do that we have to fall in love with Planet Earth, because when we love something, we bond with it, treasure it and it belongs to us. And we never have to be told to take care of something that belongs to us!
Its time to fall in love with Planet Earth and belong to it. Its time to help our children experience its wonders, instead of always putting the responsibility of saving it on them. How can our children save something that they have not experienced or understood the importance of?

Its time to take our kids on walks…not in malls all the time but once in a while in a park, on the beach and places where they can breathe pure unadulterated oxygen! Try a nighttime walk, help your child hear the sounds during a day-time walk and a night-time walk. Take a magnifying glass along for your walk in the park and see how your little explorer loves to look at leaves and insects with the magnifying glass. Next time try taking tinted magnifying glasses (available easily in all  toy stores) and see how your child will giggle and wonder at how green leaves look red or the blue sky looks green.

Sleep on the grass and look at the clouds passing by and play a game of finding object shapes in the clouds. At night look at the sky and try to look for star clusters. All these activities will help children fall in love with nature and help them understand that birds and insects and animals and trees are an integral part of our environment. They will not look at insects as ‘eek’ something to scream about or dirt and mud as ‘yucky’, they will be able to feel different textures in nature and this stimulation is extremely healthy for their emotional development and brain development. After all the 5 senses are the main route to stimulating our brain synapses.

When our children stop going outdoors they are left out of the nourishment that nature can provide for their emotional development. Nature Deficit Disorder, is a term coined by Richard  Louv  in his 2005 book Last Child in the Woods, he refers to a growing trend around the world wherein  children are spending less time outdoors resulting in a wide range of behavioral problems.

Technology is something that children have already fallen in love with, and that is why you will notice how fiercely they protect their tech gadgets and tech use time. Because they have a bond with it, it belongs to them. Let us use technology to help them experience and fall in love with nature and when they do, ensure that they get real life nature experiences too.

I have given below a list of apps that you can use to help your child fall in love with Planet Earth (these are from igamemom.com and this site has a fantastic collection of apps). Have a fun Earth Day.
·         Lorax- this app recounts  a favourite Dr Seuss story by the same name in which Lorax tries to save Truffula forest from the hands of a factory owner. The story serves as an ecological warning and is suitable for age 3 to 6 years
·         Earth Primer- an interactive science book, in this app kids can create volcanoes and sculpt mountains.
·         WWF Together- this all is from the World Wildlife Fund and has origami instructions for each animal introduced. (free)
·         The Yuckies- a series of two FREE books teaching kids about environment. The stories use muck, goop and mischief to teach kids why it is important and how to keep our environment clean. The series is designed for 5-8 year olds.
·         Toca Nature- (is my personal favourite as it helps kids and adults understand the impact of ecological changes) this is an open-ended app for kids of all ages. Kids can make changes in the natural environment and watch how other elements change correspondingly. For example, by adding trees, kids will be able to see the animal distribution changes over time, water circulation changes too.
·         WilderQuest - is a free app by National Parks and Wildlife. Through the lenses of the device, kids experience the virtual reality of the wild nature, watching animals moving close by, be so near to the plants that they will feel they can smell them and touch them. It is great way to experience the nature when you cannot go out.
·         Ranger Rick Jr. Appventures: Lions-  from National Wildlife Federation (NWF), it is the first of the series of Ranger Rick Jr. Appventures. Kids follow Ricky Raccoon to visit Lars the Lion and experience a lion’s life in the jungle. With built-in games being integral part of the story, it is a great learning app for kids age 4 to 7.
·         Audubon Birds- it is an encyclopedia on birds from Audubon Institute, who has been working on ecosystems, with focus on birds and other wildlife, for decades. There are many nice features in the app. The best is the search function. You can search a bird by color, shape, name, location, song pattern, etc. A great app to keep handy when being in the park.

What else could be a way novel .After reading the article about suicides and celebration was just pondering on how could we bring back to our kids,the life which we lived...hopping around, playing around in the mud.

Indeed a host of useful apps for our children to keep them engaged , thinking , exploring and learning the wonders of mother Earth in a fun way. As rightly said mam, its about developing belonging for our planet Earth and then caring for it automatically creeps in a human mind.

Mentor Frieda said...

Dear Swati Ma'am, thank you for yet another motivaing blog on such a pertinent issue. We all have a special glow on our face on our bithday and indeed we feel special too! But unfortunately, our Mother Earth can't have this privilege because we have not given her the respect and love she deserves.
Your unique and fabulous suggestion of bringing this to the notice of our young generation is truly phenomenal. I'm sure the message will be effective and they will realise the obligation we have to protect the depleting resources of our Earth.

Pjk Ujjain said...

Really we have to do such deeds now by which our Earth remains the same after centuries with very less changes.Whatever has happened yet we should let it go and look forward to save which is in actual condition today.Thanks Mam for sharing your thoughts with us and bringing in us a sense of togetherness.

Podar Jumbo Kids Indore 2 said...

Many things we know , but forget to follow in our actions . Like we know that we need to protect our environment but because of our daily busy routine we forget to implement it . But it is time we need to think of saving and caring our Planet Earth . Before we teach our children to save Planet Earth , we elders have to start following on our own first .We have to introduce the Earth to the children .

Manju Joshi said...

Many a times people feel that this necessity to talk about nature is for metro cities children only. But I deny this point as children situated in any part of country are getting away from the importance of nature and its need in healthy life. Article touches not only why it is required but also gives insight how we can make our children love environment .. A must read article .

Usha Bhagat PJK Ratlam said...

Such a motivating article Ma'am for everyone to take care and love our nature, earth. Indeed it is a great way to connect children with earth and nature using the technology. Every working parent can do this and make the child feel love and connect with the earth.The idea of going out with the tinted magnifying glass, and looking for the stars and shapes of objects in clouds is so good that even parents will love to do it with children and relive their childhood. Must say all the parents should try it once and definitely they will fall in love with the nature and earth all over again along with their children.

Podar Jumbo Kids Nandurbar said...

A very informative article for today's young generation. Children love nature but we as adults ignore their curiosity which makes them loose the importance of nature.

Thank you ma'am for sharing such a motivating article.

Pjk Gwalior said...

Thank you so much Swati Ma'am for this must read article. After reading this article I remember a quote "As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth, so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind. To make a deep physical path, we walk again and again. To make a deep mental path, we must think over and over the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives.".And surely as a parent,educator and a human being I will try to inculcate the best of this article in my life style.
