Earth Day Crafts!

I know I'm a few days late but here are some super fun Earth Day Ideas!

1) Backyard Wildlife Scavenger Hunt- We did this at work for our celebration and it was a TON of fun!  I went to our local nature center and got some tips for what types of wildlife we might be able to see in our backyard here in Colorado!  They helped me come up with a great list: Red Fox, Coyote, Robin, Red-winged Blackbird, Bluejay, Northern Flicker, Centipede, Grasshopper, Butterfly, Red-tailed hawk, Squirrel, ant, bee, and Canadian geese.  

Then we made a our favorites toilet paper tube binoculars while the adults hid some of this things in grassy area.  

Finally we went searching for the wildlife!  Then we talked about how you could do this in your own backyard with the real thing!  So much fun!

2) Modern Parents Messy Kids has a great tutorial for plantable earth paper!  We're going to be trying this for Garden Week!  

3) These are some great ideas for what to do with all those toilet paper rolls!

4) Some great ideas for toys to make from trash!

Have fun and love the earth!
