Super Easy Earth Day Craft

Earth Day is on April 22 this year. We usually try to do something to reflect on our gratitude for this lovely planet we live on. This year, we will be going on a field trip to a greenhouse which I’m sure will be a good way to naturally bring up topics related to Earth Day. A few years ago, we made this Earth Day craft.

This craft is a super easy introduction to the concept of Earth Day. I love crafts that can be done with very few supplies and it’s even better if they are things that you already have around. For this Earth Day craft, all you need is four items that you probably already have on hand.

Easiest Earth Day Craft Ever but it does help encourage kids to think of ways they can help take care of their planet.Materials needed:

  • paper plate
  • markers or pencil crayons
  • blue and green paint
  • paintbrushes

First, I had the kids brainstorm ideas of how we can take care of the earth and write their ideas with markers on the inside of their paper plate. This step is a good way to get to kids to think of ways that they can help take care of their planet. My kids came up with ideas such as “ride your bike to the store”, “plant a tree”, “make a garden”, and “don’t litter”.

Once they had written their ideas on the inside of the plate, each of them painted the earth on the back of the plates using blue and green paints. Easiest Earth Day Craft ever!
