Earth Day is a day to show how much we love our earth, and I wanted to find some fun (and of course GREEN) ways to celebrate with my daughter. I came across a ton of awesome ideas for Earth Day crafts so I thought I’d compile them for you!
All you need is a ball to cover with tissue paper and glue. (This tutorial uses foam craft balls, but I say re-use a ball you already have that your kid is bored of playing with!)
Paper Mache an earth, then poke holes to make it into a lit up globe!
All you need are some random little toys (I feel like those never stop coming!), water, and a container to freeze it all together. Once frozen, you have yourself a little excavation project!
4. Easy Upside Down Glass Jar Terrarium from 5 orange potatoes:
All you need is a clean glass jar, a bit of potting soil, and some moss & green stuff from outside!
All you need are some cardboard tubes and a large cardboard backing, and balls! This is also a great thing to use your Earth Day ball in if it’s small enough!
If you have a young child, I KNOW you have dried-out markers. Don’t throw them in the garbage – they’ll never decompose! But you can upcycle them into watercolours with this great tutorial! (Or you can bring them to Staples to be recycled via Terracyle!)
