Earth Day Every Day

In case you missed it Earth Day was this past Monday. But why not make every day Earth Day? Teach your kids or class to celebrate and appreciate our planet by including earth friendly crafts and activities on a regular basis. Earth Day crafts also make great lesson tools too.

Coffee Filter Earth
Simple and fun: use a coffee filter and food coloring to create pretty version of the earth to display or use in Earth Day lessons and activities.

Handprint Apricot
Another fun handprint painting idea: create a picture of apricots for Spring with your little hands and share the finished project with special friends.

Earth Resource Wheel
Create a fun learning tool with 2 paper plates, crayons and brads. Your kids will enjoy making and learning about the earth and the weather!

Handprint Flower
Construction paper, paint, your hands and imagination are all you need to create a pretty handprint flower painting to hang up or share.

Edible Earth
I love this tasty spin on regular rice krispie treats. Go to the kitchen, get your ingredients and get ready to make your very own edible earth!

Are your kiddos going a little stir crazy as they wait for the weather to warm up and the sun to stick around? Celebrate Spring with an easy-peasy butterfly craft! Make this cute little flyer with a sandwich bag, glitter and construction paper.

Here are some other super cute and fun butterfly themed crafts and snack ideas to get you ready for Spring!

Butterfly Puppet
With some cardboard and imagination, your class can make personalized butterfly puppets to play with, perform with, or decorate your room with.

Butterfly Flyer
Collect a straw, some yarn, construction paper and a few other bits from your craft cupboard - and create a butterfly flyer, perfect for your little ones to fly high.

Butterfly Surprise
Using craft sticks and creativity, make some cute little butterflies to play with and use in all sorts of decor for Spring time.

Very Neat Butterfly Feet
I love this artsy painting project for preschoolers and even little tiny ones too - paint the bottoms of their feet and create a painted butterfly to share or display!
