Happy Earth Day!

April 22 is Earth Day and the Natural Kids Team is celebrating in a big way. 55 member shops are having sales, promotions or giveaways. Check out the complete list of shops here.

To help you celebrate, many participating shops have generously donated several of their earth friendly items to be given away to a lucky winner. There are a total of five Natural Kids Team giveaways this month and one in May, including one on our own Natural Kids Blog.

This Earth Day giveaway features terrific earth friendly items from Knitting Momma, Curly Monkey, Muddy Feet and Elemental Handcrafts. These items are all crafted using natural materials and are a beautiful way to connect your child to the earth, naturally.

Knitting Momma has donated a hand knit ball. This hand knit woolen ball will provide lots of fun for toddlers and preschool age children. This ball is knit with wool and stuffed with natural stuffing.

Curly Monkey has provided an organic onesie, silk screened with a sweet eco print, using non toxic ( lead and phthalates free) soft water based inks.

Muddy Feet is donating a tiny felt snail. Perfect for a pocket or to add to a playset, the snail is hand sewn using plant-dyed wool felt (70% wool, 30% rayon) for the body, hand felted wool for the shell, and cotton thread. They measures a whopping 1.5 inches long (well, just over), and are about 3/4 to an inch inch at the widest and tallest.

Elemental Handcrafts is providing a gift certificate for a personalized wooden baby spoon.

I love Curly Monkey's rocking baby wrap, can't resist it, orange is my favorite colors.

And I think Elemental Handcrafts' ouchie pillows are just the sweetest ideas.

  91. If earth day will be held every month, I think, we will be able to save more money and save more trees and anything that has relation to the environment.

  92. Most blogs that boosted it got spammed like it was going out of method and are not turned off by it. They like the traffic but despise wading through the absurdity spam comments.

  93. Every year on April 22, people around the world celebrate Earth Day with events that promote environmental health and sustainability. And since it was first observed in 1970, Earth Day has grown from a once-a-year.

  94. Wow!
    I appreciate your post because i used to read blogs but i guess this was really a good blog. Well maybe I'll just dropped by here some other time to be updated.
