Earth Day Ideas for Your Kids!

Coffee Filter Earth
Who's ready for Earth Day (April 22 in most places)?!  We are ready at The Idea Box and we have tons of fun Earth Day crafts, games and ideas just waiting for you, your kids or your class to try.  How adorable is the Coffee Filter Earth?

Cupcake Spring Flowers
This craft is simple and fun, and can be done by little hands.  You probably already have the supplies in your cupboard!  These cupcake flowers can be used to illustrate a lesson or as a last minute filler activity if you need an easy time-filler.

Earth Day Art
A great activity to get your kids or class outside, you can use it to clean up around the house, school, church or nearby park while discussing ideas for keeping the earth clean.  Bonus - make some art out of the stuff you find on your Earth Day walk!

Earth Day Cooking Project
A successful Earth Day lesson or party must include a treat to help kids stay on topic!  The nice thing about this cooking project: you perform a little prep work and the kids create the treats.  It's a fun way to talk about the soil, gardening, or bugs and creepy crawlies!

Earth Day Flowers
This Earth Day activity is a crowd-pleaser as the kids get to make something to take home to parents or grandparents.  Take pictures of your little "flowers" and then let them add petals and leaves to the printed photos - easy!

Enjoy your Earth Day celebrations!  If you need more ideas please visit our Earth Day page for our full list!  We love feedback and photos, so please send us pictures if you try one of our activities.
