Looking for cute Earth Day Crafts? This poem and printable make a darling, yet simple project!

Earth Day Crafts

I used to teach my preschool kids the following poem every Earth Day –

Some parts of the Earth are cold and wet,

Some parts of the Earth are dry and hot.

I’ll do my best to keep Earth clean,

‘Cause it’s the only Earth we’ve got!

Cute, right?

To go along with this poem, I also created this fun project for my class that they always seemed to LOVE! Here is how to make it:

  1. Download and print the Earth Day printable (below).
  2. Have your child/ students put glue all over their circle, then place the tissue paper on top. You can overlap the tissue paper, but try to stay within the circle.
  3. Write their name (or have them do it!) and you’re done!!!
