Do Your Part: Eco-friendly ideas to keep kids busy this summer
MiamiHerald.com reported


It's summer and there's one thing parents hate to hear from the kids, "I'm bored!" While you're looking for easy ways to entertain the kiddies, you can also Do Your Part to pass along important lessons on being eco-friendly. Here are my Top 5 green ways to keep kids busy all summer long.

1) Have an Eco-Adventure
 Eco-adventures don't have to be a daunting task. They can be anything you want them to be! A simple walk or hike is the perfect opportunity to learn about the trees, flowers, and insects you might see. Or, think bigger. America's national parks are affordable and filled with all sorts of possible adventures from camping to horseback riding. If you're not sure where to get started, check DoYourPart.com/columns for links to help you search by zip code.

2) Get Crafty
 One of the best ways to take care of the planet is to get more life from things you already have. So instead of tossing out things like milk cartons, cereal boxes, or old t-shirts, show your kids how to transform them into something new and useful. Some crafts we love are making bird feeders, crafting t-shirt tote bags, and creating a kids' organizer from "trash." You find how-to videos at DoYourPart.com/columns.
