Earth Day Craft and Activities for Kids

Tomorrow, April 22, is Earth Day! It is becoming more and more popular each year.
Earth Day Craftivity
I have a quick Earth Day Craftivity for you to do with your kids. You will need to download my free worksheet at my website. Click here.

The children will need to color the Earth shape. Then with your help they can cut the shape and make arms and legs with thin strips of construction paper (folded back and forth accordion style). Glue or tape the arms and legs to the Earth shape.

If you don't have time to make the craftivity with the kids, you can still use the Earth Day printable as a coloring page.

A great book to read with the kids on Earth Day is Earth Day Hooray by Stuart J. Murphy.  Read more about this book here.

Presidents' Day Teaching Ideas and Craft

Presidents' Day is celebrated in the United States on the 3rd Monday in February. This year we will celebrate on February 20th.  Many schools pay particular attention to George Washington's birthday which is February 22. Abraham Lincoln's birthday, which is also in mid-February, is also often celebrated this month.

I found this great video that gives the names and pictures of all the presidents from George Washington to Donald Trump. I think the kids will enjoy it.  I want to thank the creator of the video, Mr.Harms, for sharing it with all of us. Click the link below to view the video.

Of course reading with the kids about the different presidents including Washington and Lincoln is always a great idea for Presidents' Day. Here is a sampling of books you might find at your library.

If you would like to make a craft with the kids, here is a fun windsock to make to make using patriotic colors of red, white, and blue. Click the picture below for directions.

Happy Presidents' Day!
