In honor of Earth Day coming up on April 22nd, I have put together some fun Earth Day activities for kids! It is never too early to raise your child’s awareness of recycling,
I love that this project uses materials that you probably already have at home. We went searching for these at my center and we had : paints, paint brushes, coffee filters, paper and scissors!
I absolutely love growing plants with my little ones at my learning house. As soon it gets warm enough here in Paris, we start planting our little garden! If you love gardening with your child too, I share some strategies to make gardening educational and fun in the post 6 Tips to Make Gardening with Children with Autism Easy and Fun.
Another one of my favorite Earth Day activities for kids… This is the sweetest little Earth-colored heart Earth Day craft. I love the little hands holding the heart. Precious.
This activity is a great way to teach your child about recycling! These little turtles are made from plastic bottles. So fun! They are also free-standing which means that you can use them like you would use puppets for creative and pretend play.
This polar craft is a great way to open up a conversation about animals and how important it is to protect the environment. I also love the googly eyes!
What better way to talk about Earth Day and celebrate than with some Earth Day songs for kids? I love each and every one of these recommendations and I think you will too!
