Celebrate Earth Day at home or in the classroom with a colorful Earth Day craft that’s easy to do and so much fun for the kids!
Earth Day Poem
Years ago, I taught preschool out of my home. The kids always loved it when we would create something. And Earth Day was no different. To start, 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!
To go along with this poem, I also created this fun Earth Day craft for my class that they always seemed to LOVE! Here is how to make it:

- Glue stick
- Blue and green tissue paper, cut into small squares
- Download and print the Earth Day printable (below).
- 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.
- Have each child color the other parts of the worksheet.
- Write their name (or have them do it!) and you’re done!!!
