This week's challenge was suggested by our bloggy friend SquirrelQueen at The Road to Here. It's a little different from our usual challenges in that the activity, while specific in a broad sense, leaves the "particulars" up to you. Are you intrigued? Read on ... you'll see what I mean:
This week we're all about kids ... after all, they will take the "green torch" and become environmental "Olympians". So this week, your challenge is to do an environmentally friendly activity with your kids (or grand kids or neighbor kids or nieces/nephews, cousins, etc). Get them involved. Need some ideas? Here you go:
Kids Links (Teaching Green)
Gardening for Kids
Once you've done the activity, we want to know about it ... so come back here and leave a comment (either with the activity or a link to a post) ... or if they did something fun during the summer like an Eco-Camp, tell us about that. We'd also be interested in little Eco-Stars ... kids who have taken it upon themselves to come up with green living ideas.
If you don't have any accessible kids to have "green" fun with, then write an article about ways that we can get kids involved in an Eco-friendly lifestyle.
So what do you think? Can you do it?
Don't forget: Commit to trying the challenge and you'll get into the Honor Society. Write a post (and be sure to let me know you did) and that post will be Stumbled and Tweeted. And ... I just happen to know that the Honor Society gets linked to in a number of other places (blogcatalog groups and other blogs). So ... lots of blog ranking and visibility opportunities available ... all while doing something good for the earth. Click HERE for the rules, all challenges and some tips & ideas.
A lot of people tried out last week's challenge. Whether they were totally successful or had a little trouble, they are members of our Honor Society in my book. Take a look:
