Earth Tree Craft for kids

Looking for something a big more involved for your Earth Day classroom or at-home crafts? This “We can help the Earth” tree craft is perfect for either collaborative classroom efforts or for group projects.

The idea behind this fun craft is simple: each leaf on the tree represents one thing that the kids can do to make a difference. It could be something as small as turning off the lights when leaving the room or bringing a reusable water bottle to school.

The overall effect of the entire tree, when finished, is a collaborative effort showing how many little things can make a big difference in the end.
