Earth Day

The 49th anniversary of Earth Day is Monday April 22. You can celebrate Earth Day with your child many different ways.  You can take a walk in the park, donate unwanted items to a local charity, go to a farmers market, or go for a bike ride It is always a good opportunity to teach your child to appreciate nature and be conscious of the waste he/she produces.

You can also read Awesome Dawson written and illustrated by Chris Gall.  Awesome Dawson is a story of a young man who finds a use for everything. It is an inspiring story and encourages the reader to be more resourceful. Our Earth Day craft uses recycled materials.


  • Egg Carton (not styrofoam)
  • Green and Brown Crayon/Marker
  • Stick Glue
  • One piece of white cardstock


  1. Cut egg carton cups out of egg carton and color each cup green.
  2. Draw the trunk of the tree on the white cardstock and color trunk brown
  3. Glue the egg cup to the cardstock just above the drawn tree trunk.  You can arrange the egg cups in any pattern to make your tree.  Use lots of glue!

Enjoy your recycled creation!
