Free Earth Day Printables: Necklace Craft for KidsValerie Mcclintick
Earth Day is April 22nd, and if you are looking for some fun, low-prep educational activities for your students you’ve come to the right place! At The Crafty Classroom we believe that learning should be fun, and there is nothing more fun then making something you actually wear and take home with you!
Today, we’re featuring a fun and free Earth Day Necklace craft available at PreschoolMom.com. This craftivity couldn’t be easier to implement in your classroom. You’ll have the option to print in color or black and white. This is a bonus for students who don’t like color (or become frustrated with coloring smaller images).
You will need scissors, string, a hole puncher, and coloring materials.
Students color and cut out the medallions. Help children use the hole puncher to punch holes over the greyed out circles on each medallion. Thread the yarn through the holes to assemble the necklace and tie in the back.
By the end of this crativity, with the cutting, hole punching and threading, your students will have worked on many fine motor skills all while learning and having fun!
This is a great way to send children home with their Earth Day message, just be sure to remind them to recycle their necklaces when they are done wearing them!
