Saturday, April 22nd, the Safeway, Inc. Child Development Center hosted an earth day celebration at the Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Inter-Generational Center in Silver Spring, Maryland. The day was filled with "green" activities to teach the children about the importance of caring for the earth. The event was open to the public.
Several families from the local community attended the event that featured terra cotta pot planting for each child to take home, a "green" sensory table with dinosaur digging, face painting, and even treats from Rita's Italian Ice. The children also learned a very valuable lesson at the earth day celebration: It is up to the children to care for the earth and keep it alive for a very long time. Families who are new to Easter Seals were also invited to tour the child development center and learn more about the services provided there.
