Tissue Paper Earth Hand Craft
My so made this tissue paper Earth Day craft when he was in preschool. I love how simple and cute it is!
Have them trace a circular shape to use as the Earth Template. Then have them paint glue inside the circle. Take pieces of cut up blue and green tissue paper and stick them to the glue.
Trace hands onto construction paper and cut out. Glue on so it looks like the hands are holding up the Earth.
What ways do you teach kids about caring for our planet?
