Earth Day is on April 22nd, and many eco-friendly families, as well as those who are in the process of becoming green are planning to participate in Earth Day activities and events. If you would like to create your own celebration at home, we have some green craft ideas that will help create lasting memories of Earth Day with your children. Special thanks to Disney Family Fun Magazine!

Jug heads: To liven up the laundry room, mount a menagerie of plastic-jug trophy heads. Our hunting grounds yielded the makings of a pig, a warthog, and an antelope, but your recycling bin may suggest a different animal collective.
Treasure-Keeper Frog: What tadpole wouldn’t love to fill this case with marbles, coins, or trinkets? We’ve come up with a trick for attaching the zipper in a snap.
Soda-Bottle Tractor: Thanks to its jumbo rear wheels made from cardboard disks and old CDs, this green machine is surprisingly speedy. A seat cut from the corner of a soap box makes the perfect perch for toy tractor operators.
Cardboard Petal Picture Frame: This fanciful frame gets its flair from snips of painted cardboard tubes. To achieve our free-form look, we cut two petal sizes.
Easy-Weave Newsprint Basket: You won’t be-weave how fast this basket comes together when you work around a form. We used a roll of paper towels for ours. Clear tape keeps the strips secure.
