Fun Earth Day projects for kids
Grow Some Memories–Earth Day Mini Garden
Help kids make mini-gardens out of recycled plastic bags, fabric scraps and ribbons. Fill each DIY satchel with a half cup of soil and wildflower seeds. Kids can then scatter their garden-to-go in the backyard or a soil-filled container, water frequently, and watch flowers bloom through the summer.
Toilet Paper Roll Bird Feeder
Teach the kids about recycling by reusing toilet paper rolls for a fun craft. All it takes is a little peanut butter, bird seed, a couple of sticks from the yard and some string.
Earth Day Cupcakes
Just add blue and green food coloring to a white cake mix for a fun and simple treat that kids will love to make and eat.
