Celebrate Earth Day with fun handprint art! I have been bookmarking Earth Day Crafts over the past several years from different bloggers, here are some of my favorites that I have come across as well as 2 of our own from our archives. Enjoy!
Earth Day Crafts Made with Handprints and Footprints
Handprint Lorax 3D Art
We made this in honor of Dr Seuss’s birthday, but it is perfect for this holiday to because of the message.

The always creative Jill made this artwork with her children. I love the details on the little people.
I Love the Earth Hand Craft via Mom to 2 Posh Little Divas
Not only do I absolutely love this craft, I think it great that this Mom uses this holiday to also teach her girls about other important things like endangered animals. Head on over to see what else they talked about!

A fun reminder that we can help make a difference.

Use this He’s Got the Whole World in His Hands craft to teach children about how God created the Earth like Jenae did with her boys. Great photo tutorial of the process!

Have kids make their very own promise to the Earth.

How much fun does this painting activity look? Great for toddlers and slightly older kids too. Mom even used recycled office paper. Be sure to check out the finished painting they proudly displayed in their home.
