It’s almost Earth Day…which means that it is a great opportunity to get the stuff out of your recyclables saving boxes and make something to decorate. Make a Get Crafty for Earth Day Tree – A Decoration to Celebrate!
This is what we used: Recycled Cardboard, Recycled Bag, Kids Choice Glue, Adult Glue Scraps of Green Felt, Paper and Foam, Buttons
I took the base of a 24-pack of water bottles and “rolled” it to make a trunk. Then I cut up some TP rolls and glued them to make branches, adding a layer of brown paper recycled bag. Then I passed the project on to Zoe to complete after completing with adult glue.
She cut out leaves from felt, scrapbook paper leftovers and foam then glued them to the branches with special glue for kids, Kids Choice Glue from Beacon. She loves this glue because it comes out easy and is not too runny. She says it is “just right.” She is so creative and added a fairy door and a hole in the trunk with googly eyes of a critter.
The tree is a darling prop for creative play with dolls.

I think the tree would make a great centerpiece for an Earth Day party table! I love using recycled stuff to create things that are fun!
Happy Saving the Trees and Making New Ones This Earth Day,
