12 Nature and Recycling Activities and Crafts for Kids

Happy Earth Day

Even though April 22nd is "officially" Earth Day, it's important to teach our children to celebrate nature and the awesomeness of our planet every day.  So today, I am sharing some fun ideas for learning, playing and creating that will get kids exploring nature and thinking about our planet.

Make you own Paper Roll Binoculars and go on a Nature Walk

Recycle Cardboard to use in Puffy Paint Art

Make Faux Lava Lamps with Recycled Plastic Bottles

Reuse Bottle Caps to Make Art (or Practice Letter Formation)

For even more great ideas check out our Take Care of Mother Earth Pinterest Board. 

What fun ways do you use nature or recycled items 
in your crafts, play or learning with kids?
