Let's Celebrate Earth Day!

Happy spring, CMBC members! April showers bring May flowers, and this month we are appreciating all Mother Nature provides for us. Earth Day is Monday, April 22, and we are celebrating by participating in these fun activities!


What better way to celebrate Earth Day than by “recycling” old arts and crafts material lying around the house to make new projects? By utilizing these used materials and not just throwing them away, you are helping the environment. Who says you can’t help the Earth in your own home?  


Torn Paper Earth Craft


What You Need:


Directions: 


  1. Print the Earth template or use a pencil or marker to trace the Earth.

  2. Gather scraps of blue and green construction paper and tear up the paper into small and medium-sized pieces.


3. Cover the Earth template with glue and stick the torn-up pieces of paper on top. Use green paper for land areas and blue paper for water.



4. You now have a recycled, adorable Earth Day craft! Feel free to show it to your friends or hang it up for Earth Day.
