Centennial celebrates Earth Day with plant sale, activities for families

Throwing mud balls at a target and using watercolors to paint images on seed paper, the children celebrated Earth Day by creatively sinking seeds into the soil during Centennial’s Earth Day event at Centennial Center Park on April 22.

Images of the Colorado flag, flowers, rainbows, horses and an island on a beach colored the seed paper, a special-made paper that contained plant seeds. The water color paints helped to activate the seeds before the paper was planted.

Bubbles, giant Jenga, life-sized bowling and other activities carried color and laughter throughout the playground.

While the children played, parents shopped for plants to decorate their gardens with. The plants, donated by CH2M and TerraCare, were sold to benefit Project C.U.R.E., a Centennial nonprofit that distributes medical supplies to countries around the world. More than $2,000 worth of plants and flowers were donated.
