Easy Earth Day Art Ideas for Creative Kids
Are you ready for Earth Day? If you’re still on the hunt for a few fun-filled family-friendly activities, check out these environmental themed art ideas!
Bird Watching Binoculars
View the natural world around you with these artsy binoculars. Even though they won’t really magnify the birds that fly through your view, these binoculars can help your kiddos to focus on their local environment—in an artsy upcycled way.
Cut the cardboard tube from a paper towel roll in two. Place each half next to each other. Glue the rolls together at the center. Paint the outside of the reused tubes. Let the binoculars dry. After the artsy item is ready take the binoculars on a bird watching adventure.
Upcycle an old cardboard box and turn it into a nature journal. Cut the sides from an old box. Draw a large rectangle on each side, sizing the two shapes to match. Place a few sheets of construction paper inside the cardboard, sandwiching it together. Punch two holes on the side and thread a piece of yard through to bind the journal. Now your child is ready to take their handmade journal outside and document nature.
