Inspired by THIS post, we made a little Earth day craft. Here’s what we did:
First, I reminded the E’s what the Earth looks like.
Then, we tore tiny pieces of green tissue paper.
And tiny pieces of blue tissue paper.
Then, I used Elmer’s glue and made a large circle on parchment paper. Ideally, you’ll want to use wax paper. But, I didn’t have any, so I used parchment paper.
With a foam brush, I spread the glue around in the circle. The kids went at it putting the tissue paper on the glue. I just reminded them that there’s far more water on Earth than land.
Next, I did another circle of glue on a new piece of parchment paper and put it on the top of the Earth.
Then, I put them outside to dry under a garden stone. In a few hours, I used construction paper to make a frame and glued that on the front and pack. I punched a hole on the top and hung our models of the Earth by the window using bakers twine.
A simple project for a beautiful day.
