Earth Day People Kid Craft

Hi All!! Happy Earth Day 2020!!!

Today we decided to create some Earth Day People for our craft using scraps from my bin. (Thanks Ms. Anna – my son’s teacher – for the inspiration!!!)

Supplies:

  • Contruction paper/Colored paper/paper plate in the color (or painted or colored) blue
  • Contruction paper/Colored paper in the color (or painted or colored) green
  • Contruction paper/Colored paper in the color (or painted or colored) white
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Marker/googley eyes/crayon/additional paper or stickers (to make face)

Instructions:

  1. Using the supplies or ideas listed above, create a round blue base for the planet Earth.
  2. Cut up pieces of green paper or color in areas of green for the land on the earth.
  3. Glue green pieces on the blue base.
  4. Next make strips of white paper into accordion folds 2 shorter and 2 longer for arms and legs. Attach with glue to the back.
  5. Add face details with desired method.
  6. Hang up your beautiful work!!!

I hope this simple craft inspires some conversation about the planet and how we as it’s caretakers can make a difference. Here is a video that my kids enjoyed to help explain what Earth Day is about: https://youtu.be/PePymheJcbc.

I am a mom of 2, wife, and am always looking to create something myself instead of buying it. I met Katy from Little Katy Bugs after becoming a mom, and we both love to craft, both have active families, and a tactful way of telling others what we truly think. I LOVE THAT!!! Art is subjective and so is crafting. So, you may not love everything we make or do, but our goal is to inspire you to create yourself and make things that you will LOVE! We do still sell some of our crafts on the site, at craft fairs, and Katy now participates in a booth store front. Check out our Facebook page for more on the booth. Sometimes we just need inspiration and camaraderie. I hope we can help provide those things to you. Sincerely Donna Beth, a Co-Blogger of www.LittleKatyBugs.com
