Earth Day Learning Craft: How To Make Earth Happy
While this is a great learning craft for Earth Day, it is packed with important habits that can be taught anytime of the year.
It is important that we as parents teach our children good habits that will take care of the planet we live on.
What Makes Our Earth Happy And Sad
Follow along with the step-by-step photos below, then print off your templates at the end of the post and have some fun!
Print off your templates and learning sheet (link at the end of the post) and gather your supplies.
For this learning craft you will need:
- Velcro Dots
- Printable template
- Printable learning sheet
Using a green crayon, colour the land portion of Earth.
Next, use a blue crayon to colour in the water portion of Earth.
Colour in the facial pieces, heart, and band-aid.
Cut out all of the template pieces.
Add four velcro dots to the earth.
Two dots will go where you want to put the eyes, one where you want to put the mouth, and one where you want to put the heart/band aid.
Add the other side of the velcro dots to the back side of the template pieces.
Stick the velcro pieces together.
If only making one Earth, your little one can have fun changing the pieces of the face.
Cut the arm/leg piece from the template and then trace the template onto green cardstock.
You will need 4 pieces per earth you are making.
Cut out your pieces and then fold each arm/leg piece in an accordion shape.
Glue the arms and legs onto the earth.
Now your little one can have fun learning what things make Earth happy, and what things make Earth sad.
This craft as a great learning tool. Use it to discuss what we can do to help the earth and the things that we should not do.
Let your little one highlight the things that make Earth happy, and cross out the things that make Earth sad.
