The entire reason that Earth Day has been set aside as a holiday is to celebrate the wonderful provisions of this planet and to remind ourselves that we shouldn't abuse it in our daily lives. By promoting green tasks and objects, we are conserving energy and helping to save and restore the earth. Therefore, participating in green holiday crafts can really show our dedication to helping keep the earth beautiful and productive for hundreds of thousands of years to come.

Using recycled goods to create a piece of art is a great way to partake of the Earth Day theme, especially for school children. Tin cans, paper shreddings, crayon shavings, and other recycled or recyclable materials can be used to depict a scene, or a drawing that shows something to do with Earth Day can be equally stimulating.

You may also wish to gather a classroom full of children and create a mural, with each child participating by adding to a large picture that shows what Earth Day means to them or what they can do to help protect and preserve the earth. The mural can hang on one wall of the classroom for several weeks to remind the children of the importance of Earth Day and what it represents.

Providing children with holiday related crafts, especially for lesser known or observed holidays like Earth Day, can really help them to get a sense of what the day should mean to them, and at a time when lack of natural resources and damage to the environment are such strong topics, Earth Day is a great place to start implementing such educational projects and crafts.
