I spent time making this Save Environment Craft with my kid which was a great bonding activity while giving him education and importance of saving our mother earth.
Save the earth or save the nature is an important message to convey for kids. They learn such valuable lessons from their early stages of life if we teach them. At our home, I always try to reuse, recycle or re-purpose items before discarding. Once we made a recycle box to collect the recyclable materials. At that time kid was a toddler and he enjoyed the project with me. This was a good initiative to teach him about importance of recycling.
Now he is a kindergartner and he learn similar topics in his preschool. For this December holiday his teacher asked to create few art crafts choosing 2 topics. One was jungle theme and we made a lion from empty juice carton. And below is how we made this earth friendly art craft.
If you look for arts and crafts for earth day or saving earth arts & crafts to make with kids, this will be a great idea.
How to make save environment art craft?
Toilet paper roll or any cardboard roll
A pair of scissors
How to make:
Cut a blue colour or relevant color paper to the size of paper roll. Glue on paper roll. Then Cover the paper roll with blue colour paper.
Decorate it with Green or relevant colour to make it look like earth.
Cut few hearts from colour papers. Match the colours as you like. Make it beautiful by pasting small hearts in light colour papers.
Write earth friendly messages on these hearts. Some of the messages we wrote are as below which help the kid to understand the importance of saving earth.
- Save water
- Save electricity
There are many earth friendly messages that kids can use on this art craft.
Then, use a ribbon to paste the hearts. Attach all these messages to the earth we made using the toilet paper roll.
Finally we have an earth friendly craft made from items that are to throw away. Or we repurposed some of the items that are supposed to throw.
Skills to improve: scissor skills, awareness of importance of saving earth, recycle/reuse/re-purpose, concentration
