Easy Earth Day Craft for Kids

Supplies needed (affiliate links included):

We were able to find all of these materials at our local craft supply store. They have a huge variety of colored paper plates to choose from (as do most dollar stores) as well as felt sheets to choose from.

1. Begin by laying your paper plate flat so the blue side is exposed.
2. Begin cutting out sections of green felt or green construction paper. You want them to look like land mass, so cut out just random shapes by eye.
3. You can now begin gluing the green felt to the plate. Arrange them in different ways with space in between each other so they start to look like land and water, or like a globe would.
4. With your marker, write “Earth Day 2014” on the plate. You can write directly on it.

You can attach a piece of string to hang your Earth Day sign, which is a great idea if doing this craft with a whole classroom. Or, just add a little bit of tape to the back and hang it on the wall. Either way, this is a fun and frugal way to celebrate Earth Day and all of the fun that comes with it.

  1. Very cute, I can never find the right colored paper plate when I need it. That blue is perfect!

  2. Earth day crafts are so fun. This one looks super easy and makes a fun mobile if you paint both sides. We love to recycle things in our crafts around about those days 🙂

  3. This would be a great craft project for my girls. They’d love it and the materials are things I already have around the house.

  4. Thank you for any other informative web site. The place else could I get
    that type of information written in such a perfect manner?
    I have a venture that I’m simply now working on, and I have been at the glance out for such info.

  5. There is a sound that most humans will experience many times in life, that, despite being perfectly ordinary and
    extremely frequent, never fails to awaken a soul-crushing sadness deep within our minds.
    This is the precise feeling that stirred me each morning,
    as my alarm clock stirred me from sleep. I awoke as if my
    alarm clock had unexpectedly poked me with a cattle
    prod. My eyes shot open, while my body catapulted itself out
    of bed. I stood for a moment, surveying my immaculately clean,
    and meticulously modern bedroom, and allowed my mind a chance to catch
    up with my movements. My girlfriend managed to stay sound asleep through this fiasco, and looked peaceful as ever.
    I glanced at the clock, and like many other mornings before this one, realized my scramble to wake up and get going was fruitless.
    I was up early, and there was no need to rush.
    The real urgency was coming from my own personal rush to break away from my horribly mundane
    My name is Justin Rylands, and my life is not bad by any means.
    I am 27 years old with a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Princeton.
    My father, Drew Rylands, was responsible for starting one of the most successful dental technology distribution warehouses in the United States, and this provided me with a
    guaranteed, top dollar sales position since the day I exited my mother’s womb.
    I have a sought-after career, a beautiful girlfriend,
    an apartment that looks like a Home Goods catalog came to life, and a picture perfect family.
    I was not rebellious growing up, and I equate this to my
    wealthy upbringing, and well-structured, loving parents.
    I was always handsome, and intelligent. I was dedicated
    to school, and sports, and rarely ever distracted by girls.
    I was disinterested in parties, and the
    counterproductive activities my peers got off on.
    I was a born success story. I was everything any parent could ask for, and they were
    well aware of this. I was nothing at all like my insurgent older brother who’d
    flown the coop when I was 13. My parents had convinced me that, “Andy went away for college, because that’s what young
    men do when they turn 18.” But I knew this was a lie,
    even as a child. My brother was an absolute shit head, and I was
    a firsthand witness to his teen years full of underage drinking and cutting
    class. I can recall numerous late nights that ended in my mother sobbing
    on the couch while my father was on the phone explaining to the cops
    what crime his hooligan son got himself caught up in now.
    It was not until I was 17, and overheard a phone
    call between my brother and father, that I finally discovered Andy had run off with
    a group of glass blowing hippies who crafted marijuana pipes and travelled the
    country with the small amount of money they made selling these “art pieces”.
    I was never entirely able to grasp why this lifestyle brought my brother
    so much joy, but after 4 years of this perpetuating 9 to 5 grind,
    I started to wonder if Andy had the right idea after all.

    “Morning Boss,” I said, half-joking to my father upon stepping into
    his office.
    “Ah, my son! Bright and early as always. Just like your father.” He clapped
    his hand on my back and gave me that classic, fatherly grin.
    “I’ve got a project for you.” I cringed.
    I figured this meant I’d be planning another painfully boring charity
    event for inner-city children with no dental insurance.
