I rounded up some of my favourite Earth Day craft ideas here – lots of variety to choose from! And here is my repurposed birdfeeder craft – a hit with my daughter and birds in our yard!

2. The Lorax themed Earth Day:

The Lorax is a book that many parents recommend as a perfect book for teaching kids about green living. Here are some ideas for celebrating Earth Day around the book theme.

3. Sprouting Seed Activity:

This is a fabulous activity for teaching kids about how roots grow, and how plants start from seeds!

4. Make DIY Garden Markers:

There are so many cool and creative garden markers you can make by reusing and recycling materials.

I did this last year with my daughter and it was so much fun! We collected or took pictures of things that we found on our nature walk.

I have seen so many beautiful fairy gardens and am dying to make one with my daughter! So many awesome ideas out there!
