Earth Day crafts are a great way to introduce your child to the spirit of Earth Day.
When is Earth Day? It’s April 22nd, so it’s time to round up and share our Earth Day activities. What I love about Earth Day is that there are so many angles you can take. The 3 Rs – Reduce, Re-Use and Recycle is a great way to start. You can also focus on learning about how the Earth works, how we are taking from it and how we can try to give back. The Earth Day crafts for kids listed here are all hands on ways to teach your child about our beautiful planet.

A book called: The Wartville Wizard is enjoyed and makes the point by my kindergarteners at this time of year.

Thanks for all the great ideas! I really love the table top recycling center idea! Can’t wait to try a few of these ideas on Friday for Earth Day.

This is an excellent post. I was looking for some Earth Day ideas to do with my nieces and for my website. This hits the spot. I think my 15-month old will even appreciate the Earth Day tambourine. Thanks a ton.
