Celebrate Earth Day with Chocolate Garden Cups! {Giveaway}

Kids love fun treats and do I ever have a fun treat to share with you!

Did you know that Earth Day is coming up on April 22nd? This is a special day to remind ourselves of just how precious our earth is and how we need to take care of it on a daily basis. I love finding companies that have the philosophy of being kind to our earth, that is why I have partnered up with Envirokidz! EnviroKidz is all about making learning about animals and the planet FUN and delicious for kids. This is right up my alley!

Why not talk about gardening with your children this Earth Day? It is a perfect time to start making plans for your garden this summer. Getting children involved allows them the opportunity to take ownership of a project and educates them about the earth, plant life and nutrition in a hands on experience.

Since it is still too cold to garden outdoors, why not make a special indoor treat for your kids? Chocolate Garden Cups are super cute and relatively easy to make. You could start seeds indoors and once all of the hard work is done, the kids can enjoy a special Earth Day treat!
