Earth Day is the perfect time to remind your kids how important it is to take care of our planet. This Earth flower craft is a fun reminder that we need to do our best to help Earth. One way to do so is to recycle. That’s why the Earth flower grows in a flowerpot with the recycling sign on it.
For more ideas on how kids and their families can help Earth, I would recommend to take a look at this happy Earth sad Earth activity – great for kids as young as preschoolers and older ones too. Children will have to do some sorting and determine if our actions (like plating a new tree) are good or not for our planet.
The Earth flower craft comes with an easy template. Because the recycling sign on the flowerpot may be a bit too little for young hands to cut out, I have also included a flowerpot that kids can color.

How to make the Earth flower craft
The Earth flower template comes with two versions:
1. home template – cut out the patterns and trace them on corresponding colored paper.
2. classroom template – print the pattern directly on colored paper and cut them out.
This way you can easily craft with just one or two kids as well as with a classroom full of students.
