Creative Earth Day Crafts and Projects For Students of All Ages

Fun Earth Day Crafts Ideas and Projects for Kids in Kindergarten through Highschool!

We celebrate Earth Day every year in our homeschool. One year we planted a salsa garden, another we painted a beautiful watercolor earth, we have done a ton of hiking, when we have been rained out we have taken virtual tours of national parks, and we have made adorable upcycled butterflies and strung them into a garland for our homeschool room. This year I have searched the internet for earth day crafts and projects that we can all use in our classrooms so that our kids have time to celebrate this earth we all call home.
