Earth Day Handprints
Earth Day is April 22. Use this fun craft as an easy way to talk about taking care of the environment. The power is in their hands to keep the earth clean and healthy!
- Skin-colored paper
- Blue and green paint, markers or crayons
- White cardstock paper
Step one: Trace your child's hands and cut them out.
Step two: Cut out a heart from the cardstock paper.
Step three: Paint or color the heart to look like the earth using blue and green.
Step four: After the paint dries, glue the hands onto the heart so it looks like they are holding the Earth.
Step five (optional): Brainstorm ways your child can help take care of the earth and list those ideas on the back!
