If you’re looking to help children improve their motor skills, this is an excellent craft choice. Not only will kids practice these skills by cutting out the headband, but if you choose the black and white template, they can color it in!

To complete this activity, kids will color the headband (if you’re using the black and white template) and then list three ways that they can help the Earth. If you’re a teacher, you could make this a collaborative effort or you can allow students to think of ways they can help on their own.

If you think that kids can’t do anything to help out the planet, think again! There are a lot of things, big and small, that kids can do to make a difference. For instance, did you know that asking their parents to switch from paper and plastic lunch bags to reusable boxes reduces plastic waste?

No matter what age group you teach or nurture, they’ll enjoy this I can help the Earth headband!
