Parents And Kids Send Love Letters For Our Planet!

It's almost Valentine's Day - an opportunity to express our love for our kids and for the planet they'll inherit, including the need to take action to protect it.

We have a kid-friendly action for Valentine's. Want to join in?

This activity is inspired by a similar one put on by the local group Pour Nos Enfants / For Our Kids Montréal who put on a card drawing/writing party at Christmas time.

Like them, you could do this in a social setting with friends (maybe with food and drinks), or you could do this with your family at home.

What you'll need:

  1. Some kids and grown ups, food/drinks, and a place to gather
  2. Some paper or blank cards to write, draw, or paint on (maybe re-purpose old cards?), envelopes, and some crayons or basic art supplies
  3. Some "take action!" messages for the Prime Minister, cabinet members, Members of Parliament, or other politicians or companies

You don't even need a stamp if you send your cards to any Member of Parliament (which includes the Prime Minister or cabinet members) - just address it to her/him at: House of Commons, Ottawa, ON, K1A 0A6.

BONUS: Take pictures of your activity and/or your cards before you send them and post to social media. Send pics to us and we'll amplify - you can email them to hello@forourkids.ca or tag us on Facebook at @ForOurKidsCanada

Have fun!
