celebrate Earth Day 2017 with Born in China

Earth Day 2017 is almost here (ahem… April 22nd)… and this year it seems especially important to celebrate and share the message of saving our planet with our kiddos. Whether you’re marching for science, or simply celebrating at a festival in your neighborhood, take some time this weekend to share with your family the fact that we only have one earth and that we need to take care of it.

But you know what has been an incredibly easy way for me to help teach the importance of Earth Day to Miss L?  Disneynature films! And this Earth Day will be no exception with the release of, “Born in China.”  And I can guarantee you just one word will get you to see this film:


You LOVE pandas. Everyone LOVES pandas. I LOVE PANDAS! I mean, I spent 1.5 hours last year at the Smithsonian Zoo watching the pandas and practically crying for every minute I was there!

Heck, we have even used Virtual Reality (via our PlayStationVR) to play with the pandas this week!

And in case you don’t fall apart at the sight of a panda like I do, I think there are other ridiculously adorable baby animals to tide you over as well.

Yup. We’re all going to see Disneynature’s Born in China and hug our Earth a little tighter when we get home!

And here’s an activity packet for all of you with littles at home who want to learn a little bit more about all of the animals in Disneynature’s Born in China!
