This weekend was so beautiful and we were able to snag some time outside with family as we celebrated Easter. My husband and I planted some flowers yesterday and we had our Easter egg hunt outside. Sunshine is SO good for our souls! It’s as if all of our spirits are lifted now that spring is in bloom and the horrid cold days are over.

Because today is Earth Day, I’m hoping to spend time outside with the kids. Maybe a picnic in the backyard, or time at the park? I’m clearly feeling ambitious as I write this at night – ha! We will see where the day takes us, but I do want to make an effort to celebrate the beautiful planet we live on. If all else fails, I know I’ll read Here We Are: Notes for Living on Planet Earth by Oliver Jeffers. We love this book and it’s such a sweet book for the kids to learn more about Earth and the things that live on it.

My husband has been so great about teaching Peyton about our planet and the ways we can help reduce waste and care for the Earth. We also learned a lot about recycling and reducing waste in this month’s Kids Night In Box too, which was so fun! The menu I put together for this month’s box included an avocado toast with edible flowers to represent the vibrant colors of Earth. Below are two versions that both adults and kids can enjoy.

There are so many ways to celebrate our precious planet. I hope you enjoy time outdoors today! If you end up making this recipe, don’t forget to tag your photos with #marinamakeseats!
