With this Earth Craft your kids are ready to celebrate our beautiful planet! This craft is super quick to prep and the kids will love the process! These planets don’t have to look perfect because the main idea is for kids to learn about the world and the planet Earth.

Materials for earth craft:
- First, cut the green and light blue tissue paper into squares, about 2″ x 2″. They don’t have to be perfectly square as they will be crinkled up anyways. Place them into a bowl.
- Let the kids “create” their own planet Earth by gluing the pieces of crinkled tissue paper onto the paper plate.
TIP- using the book I mentioned above, really helps! Or use any book that has a picture of Earth for the kids to use as reference.
