Arbor Day Pins: Popular Parenting Pinterest Pin Picks


Leaf Art

Arbor Day is a holiday held annually on the last Friday in April that encourages individuals and groups to plant and care for trees. For Week 5 of Popular Parenting Pinterest Pin Picks, I am presenting my top Pinterest pins about Arbor Day from and for fellow parenting blogs. Here are my top favorite Arbor Day-inspired pins for the week.

Popular Handprint Craft Pin

Handprints crafts are hugely popular among parenting bloggers. My top Arbor Day handprint craft comes via Alexandra Morris. Making trees from handprints that illustrated the four seasons of the year is great way to celebrate Arbor Day as well as to teach about the seasons.

Popular Nature Craft Pin

Because Arbor Day is all about trees, what better way to celebrate than to use fallen leaves in a craft project. My top Arbor Day craft pick that uses natural materials is a leaf painting idea via Janelle Wride.

Popular Dr. Seuss Pin

The Lorax by Dr. Seuss is about protecting the environment. The Lorax speaks for the trees, so what better way to celebrate Arbor Day than with Truffula tree pencils via Janelle Wride.

Popular Food Pin

No celebration is complete without some sort of snack. My top food pin for Arbor Day the Doughnut Tree from Food Network.

Popular Informational Pin

In addition to planting trees, celebrants of Arbor Day can also care for trees, which includes planting other plants around existing trees. My top informational pick teaches inspiring gardeners about planting flowers and other plants in the shady area under trees.
