3 Earth Day Activities for Preschoolers and Elementary Kids

Earth Day is quickly approaching and I have 3 activities to do with preschoolers and elementary kids. Earth Day is a great day for kids to learn about the Earth. Earth Day began in 1970 to educate people about the dangers of a polluted environment. Senatory Gaylor Nelson and Denis Hayes organized the first Earth Day. It was a day where many groups were able to unite. It paved the way for the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Occupational Safety Heath Act, Clean Air Act, Endangered Species Act, Clean Air Act, and many more. In 1990 Earth Day went global.

The first activity is cuddling with this Sammy the Seal Shore Buddy and reading the Shore Buddies book. Shore Buddies are stuffed animals made from recycled plastic bottles. The bottles are shredded into plastic flakes. Some are used for the stuffing, some to make yarn for the outside. One dollar from every purchase goes to help save Marine Life.

The next activity is to make a landscape drawing with crayons and markers. My daughter has a special technique to draw a tree with paint brush markers.

The last activity is a scavenger hunt all about recycling. This could be done outside, in the house, or over zoom. Click here to have this delivered to your inbox.

I hope these activities help you have a great Earth Day!
