Earth Day Craft Wreath
Cut a circle shape approximately 8-10 inches in diameter, cut out the center of the circle so that the shape resembles a doughnut. The circle shape should be a heavier material such as cardboard, a cereal box is a great weight cardboard. Cut out blue and green tissue paper squares approximately an inch in diameter. Use the eraser portion of a pencil and wrap individual squares of tissue paper on the tip of the pencil. Then gently dip the pencil with the tissue paper into white glue and press down on to the cardboard. Alternate with the blue and green tissue until the cardboard is completely covered. Glue a loop or paperclip on the back of the cardboard wreath and allow sufficient time to dry. Once the Earth Day Craft is complete, hang up for display. This may end up being one of the kids’ favorite Earth Day activities!
