Kids can make a BEAUTIFUL Earth Craft to celebrate our planet on Earth Day using coffee filters and following our easy directions.
Earth Day is right around the corner on April 22nd so to start celebrating we made an Earth Day Coffee Filter craft to hang on our window. Children can learn about the earth as they paint oceans and create continents. Once the craft is done kids can stand back and admire the beauty of the Earth which is a perfect time to remind children the responsibility we all have of keeping the Earth clean!

Have child paint the coffee filter the colors of the ocean and set it aside to dry.
Have child look at a map or globe and cut out continents. (This reminded me of our World Map Activities that we learned about continents).
Have child glue their continents to the coffee filter and set it aside to dry. Once dry hang the earth craft in the window and enjoy!

Thanks so much for sharing! We have always done the adorable coffee filters but haven’t added the continents like that! Thank you for sharing! Can’t wait to try with our Creative Tots preschoolers!
Hi Emilie, Thanks so much! I hope everyone has tons of fun crafting!
What a pretty craft!! We have done coffee filter art like that, but I love how you added in the continents. So clever!.
Hi Karyn, Thanks so much! I like that part too because the kids were free to cut out their own shapes.
