art-activity

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.

Nature Journal

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.

Earth Day Drawing

What does Earth Day mean to your child? Gather together paper, pencils, markers, and crayons and come up with an answer. Ask your child to draw their representation of the holiday and why it’s special to them.
