Earth Day is April 22nd. It is never too soon to start teaching your children about the planet & how to protect it. We have taught our daughter to recycle & the importance of not wasting food, water or electricity. Even her favorite book “The Lorax” teaches her about what can happen if we don’t protect our planet.

Since my daughter loves sewing so much, to celebrate this Earth Day, we opted to make an Earth craft & lacing activity. Here is how.
What you will need:
Draw a circle and a rough sketch of the Earth on a piece of cardboard. The shapes do not have to be perfect. Poke holes around the outline of the shapes of the continents.
Paint the cardboard using green for the inside of your outline & blue on the outside. Let the paint dry.
Use a yarn needle to thread through the holes on the inside of the continents.
Thank you as always for stopping by. Please follow us on Facebook as well.
What a great project for Earth Day indeed and I agree they are never to young to teach them about our planet and how to be mindful and respectful of it, too.
We love the Lorax & we talk about the book every time we read it.
