Bring in recycled items to make various art projects out of and have a Recycled Art Show. Can have the children bring in recycled items.

Use a brown paper bag and some newspaper to make a model Earth. Stuff the bag with the paper and close with a twist tie. Paint the Earth blue and then when that dries you can either use printable land forms or have the children use a globe and paint their own.

Have an Earth Friendly Picnic. Tell each parent to pack a brown bag lunch that is earth friendly. Things like fruit, etc. You supply cloth napkins. After you are finished collect the brown paper bags and make puppets from them. While on your picnic have a race to see who can pick up 3 pieces of trash first.

Mini Terrarium

Need: 2 clear plastic cups, potting soil, transparent tape, radish seed or grass seed.

Soak enough soil to fill one cup half full. Sprinkle the seeds on top. Invert the other cup over the top and tape the seams. Place in a warm, sunny place and wait for the seeds to sprout.

A terrarium is like a tiny world. The top cup is like the sky. It traps the evaporating water from the soil and recycles it over and over.
