Teach Your Kids How to Go Green with Fun Activities

Teach Your Kids How to Go Green with Fun Activities

Do your kids love to turn off appliances, conserve hot water, and power down electronics on behalf of a grateful natural environment? No? Neither do mine. Let's be honest: it's a rare child who prioritizes concern for her carbon footprint and takes action. That's why this was a timely blog idea from the Tom's of Maine team. 

When I got the assignment, I had just finished harping on my kids to be more mindful of their consumption. So it was the perfect time to change tactics. Lecturing was getting us nowhere. It was time to have some fun. 

Are you in the same boat today? If so, you don't need a writing assignment to shape up. Take my advice and learn from my mistakes - try the suggestions in this article, and you'll be glad you did. 

Are you excited to see the final product? I'm delighted to share it with you. Here it is. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed crafting it. 

P.S. If I could offer a bit of advice to other freelance writers, thank your editor for revision requests. My editors patiently sent this article back to me about 3 times before I got the hang of it. At any point, they could (and at the time, should) have given up on me, but they didn't. Today, my editors are my biggest fans. But the day I wrote this, I had them all wondering whether I had the skills to succeed. Early freelance writing projects are the ones that can make or break your career, and this one almost sank mine. Thank you, Skyword
