Make your own Earth with these cool Earth Day crafts for kids

Of all the Earth Day craft ideas I’ve seen that get creative when it comes to reusing and recycling, I love the idea of making an actual Earth on this very important day.

Here are five cool Earth Day crafts for kids that we hope will encourage discussion and action.

Plantable Earth Day Craft on Cool Mom Picks

If you’re up for a challenge, this Plantable Paper Earth from Modern Parents Messy Kids is pretty fantastic. The best part? You can plant these earths in your garden and watch them grow.

Earth Day Play Dough on Cool Mom Picks

Grab some green and blue food coloring to make this DIY Earth Day play dough. Then your kids can make the Earth into whatever shape they like.

Earth Luminary Craft on Cool Mom Picks

We can always count on our friends at Kiwi Crate for wonderful craft ideas, and their Earth Luminary is no exception. Yes, a bit messy, but the final result = adorable.

Earth Day Egg Craft on Cool Mom Picks

Don’t put away those Easter egg dyeing supplies yet. These Earth Day eggs are a cool, easy craft for kids that can be edible too.

Earth Day Crayons on Cool Mom Picks

How cool are these Earth Day crayons? They’re pretty simple to make (as is the Earth Day play dough) and a wonderful classroom favor for the kids to bring to school.
