Earlier this month, National Geographic launched the new NatGeo@Home hub, an online destination for families to find resources as we all spend more time at home. Now, the platform is celebrating Earth Day with brand new content!

In a celebration that is lasting all week long (Apr. 17-22), NatGeo@Home is encouraging families to stay connected by bringing the world to their home by hosting a Neighborhood Safari. Keep scrolling to see some easy ideas on creating your own wild world!

Let the kids go crazy creating a safari scene, using sidewalk chalk, original drawings or paintings. You can even download the free coloring pages from the NatGeo@Home hub.

Inspire their creations by sharing fun animal facts, the animal encyclopedia or award-winning photography. Then it’s time to display!

Encourage your kids and neighbors to hang up their artwork so everyone can see. Get creative with window displays, balconies and fences! Then, take a walk around your neighborhood to check out all the unique animals.

Don’t forget to snap a few pics and share with the hashtag, #NatGeoEarthDayAtHome!
