Home-baked Earth Day Cookies

Simple Earth Day Cookies to Make this Weekend

Every April 22, we celebrate Earth Day, which is a reminder to safeguard Earth, its resources, and species. As we all know, global warming has been an issue since the early 2000s. You may have noticed that some places experience extreme weather conditions they have not experienced before. For example, a friend of mine in Canada mentioned that they experience snowfall this April — during springtime — can you imagine that! If you remember, Texas also got snowed in last February in 2021 — and Texas does not get snow.

Baking Activities for Earth Day

If you have kids at home, baking is one of the activities you can do on Earth Day and teach them valuable concepts. For example, you can talk about cleaning up and not wasting water. If you don’t have kids, you can still make these Earth Day cookies and sell them or give them away to spread awareness. You can raise funds by selling the cookies and donate them to a charity that protects the earth.

These Earth Day cookies are not just delicious, they are also very easy to make. The blue and green color aptly represent the earth and are pleasing to the eye. You can even tweak the cookies by decorating them with different colors for birthdays, Valentine’s day, baby showers, and other special occasions. You can also bake these special cookies everyday and encourage creativity with kids by letting them decorate them as they please.


Baking is a great way to teach practical life concepts to children. Young as they are, they are like sponges who easily absorb information. What better way to teach them about caring for the earth and the environment than baking earth day cookies. If you don’t have kids, you can also bake these cookies and give them away to those in need to raise awareness.
