Earth Themed Games and Activities

It happens every year; April 22nd is officially Earth Day. This is a day devoted to protecting the environment, but that isn’t something that should only take place once a year. The land you walk on is more valuable than a once a year recognition, but instead, you should practice nurturing and caring for the Earth all year round.

No matter if you’re a parent or a teacher, it’s important to teach your children what they can do throughout the year to keep the land clean and pure. Things such as creating a recycling theme for preschool children or coming up with some junk art ideas for kids are great ways to teach them about recycling and cleaning up litter. Perhaps you will want to teach them about going green by creating some green craft ideas and of course, you will need to have plenty of activities for earth day on hand to keep everyone busy no matter what their ages.

If you’re not sure what to do for Earth Day, keep reading because the following will give you 112 earth themed games and activity ideas for kids of all ages, and the adults won’t get bored with any of these activities either. There is even a list of songs for earth day music and some great earth day snack ideas. So, go ahead and get to planning, because Earth Day shouldn’t be a once a year event, but rather an event to celebrate all year long.

Earth Day Art Activities

You will be headed in the right direction when you start the day’s events with some cool earth day art activities. You will find something here for all ages in your group, and you might even consider pairing up the younger kids with the older ones when the projects seem a bit harder.

1. Trash Collage or Mural

Use disposed of paper, labels, stamps, scraps cut from junk mail, used craft items, etc. Use everything you can find that is typically thrown away; with all this, make a wonderful collage or a mural. 

* Another Idea* Research and make informational posters on such things as the rain forest or endangered species and the protection of animals on the brink of extinction. Design an attractive mural with the information.

2. Earth Day Program Quilt

Give children 6-inch squares and have them draw something in nature that they appreciate. Punch holes in all four corners of each square and tie the squares together with yarn. Hang them up for all to admire.

3. Rain Stick #1 (Heavy-duty)

Materials:

  • Hammer
  • Nails
  • Heavy cardboard mailing tubes
  • Assorted filler material (rice, beans, etc.)
  • Tape
  • Things for decorating stick (raffia, ribbons, wrapping paper, self-adhesive shelf paper, etc.)

Hammer the nails into the heavy cardboard mailing tubes 1/8-inch apart, using the spiral seam of the cardboard.

Add several handfuls of the assorted filler

Seal each end of the tube securely with tape.

Decorate your stick 

4. Rain Stick #2

Materials:

  • Empty paper towel roll
  • Tape that can be painted
  • Paint
  • Glue
  • Uncooked rice
  • Toothpicks

Pre-poke holes into the side of the paper towel rolls.

Have children poke toothpicks through the holes and glue each end of the toothpick.

Tape one end of the roll closed.

Add rice and tape the other end closed.

Children can paint their sticks as they choose.

 Cut off the toothpicks that stick out from the tube.

5. Create a Wood Glossary

Ask each student to define a woods word and decorate the classroom with the terms.

* Another Idea* Are you decorating your room for a party? Put up decorations made from recycled or reused materials. Instead of using crepe paper, cut strips of used notebook paper or construction paper and glue them together to form colorful chains to hang from the ceiling. Be creative!

Littering Activities for Preschoolers and Older Kids Too

Everyone knows that littering isn’t cool, that’s why it’s so important to add some littering activities for the preschoolers and the older kids too. These activities can be incorporated with picking up litter and learning how to recycle the trash into other things, while some of the other activities will teach them what happens when litter is buried.

6. Litter Bug Craft

Materials:

  • Empty paper towel rolls
  • Stickers
  • Markers
  • Pipe cleaners
  • String or yarn 
  • Buttons
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Google eyes

Using the craft supplies and your imagination create your own Litter Bug. 

Be sure to make it an ugly little bug. 

Use this bug to show young children that this is what people look like when they don’t throw away trash.

 7. Making Litter Bags for Parents’ Cars

Materials:

  • Small lunch bags or white craft bags (enough for each child)
  • Crayons, construction paper, or pictures cut from magazines
  • Hole punch
  • Scissors
  • String, yarn, or ribbon

Allow children to decorate the bag with pictures of flowers, trees, and animals.

Open the bag and bend the top down 1-inch.

Punch two holes on one side at the top.

Loop and tie a piece of string, yarn or ribbon through the two holes.

Tell the children to hang their litter bags in their parents’ cars; remind them that all car litter should go in the litter bag.

8. Plant an Indoor Litter Garden

Materials:

  • Medium sized container
  • Dirt
  • Various items of litter
  • Water

Find a medium sized container. Something about the size of a windowsill planter will do.

Fill the container about halfway up with dirt.

Plant some litter; plant foods, paper, metal, plastics, fabrics and anything else that might be litter. Use your imagination. Be sure and write a list of everything that’s planted.

Water your litter garden about once a week. Keep the soil moist but not flooded, how you’d water plants.

At the end of several months to a year, dig up your litter garden and note any changes in the litter. See which items decomposed and which didn’t. Your observations can be incorporated into lessons on ecology, environment, and biodegradability.

9. Garbology: Whose Trash is it?

Materials:

  • 5 paper grocery bags
  • Various pieces of clean trash (no discarded food items)

Before You Get Started:

Gather clean items of trash and sort them into themed bags, such as a junk-food bag with Doritos and Snickers wrappers, and a pet-friendly bag with cat-food cans, receipts for vet bills, etc. Then divide the class into small groups and give each group a bag of trash. 

What to Do:

Ask kids to pull out one piece of trash at a time and record each item and how it was used. When the bags are empty, have the groups look at their findings and develop a hypothesis about the people to whom the trash belongs. Invite the kids to present their findings.

Litter spoils the woods and can hurt the animals and visitors

As a special project have students pick up litter in the woods and then dispose of it properly.

Weigh how much litter was collected and make a list of the things that were found.

Contact the media to do a story on the children’s concern for their environment.

*Great Idea* Collect litter in your program area; set a collection goal and keep track on a posted litter-meter. Be sure kids wear protective disposable gloves when collecting litter.

More Activities for Earth Day

You will never run out of ideas because some of these ideas can be stretched over a period of time. There are projects here that will get the kids out into the community and other projects will allow them to put their creative minds to work on group projects. There is so much to learn here from an earth day grocery project to the endangered species living in the rainforest, you will find there is something for every group here.

10. Earth Day Groceries Project

  • Borrow – Contact a local grocery store that uses large paper grocery bags. See if the manager will let you “borrow” enough bags so that each student in your school can decorate one. Let the manager know about the project and its environmental education message, of course! Grocers usually get these bags in “bundles” of 500.
  • Decorate – Have students at school decorate the bags with pictures of the earth, environmental messages, the name of your school, etc. Be creative! DO NOT allow students to write their last names on any bags.
  • Deliver – A couple of days before Earth Day you and/or your students return the decorated bags to the grocery store – with many thanks to the manager! The store then distributes these bags (full of groceries) to happy and amazed shoppers on Earth Day.

*Another Idea* If you can’t use paper bags, you can have students decorate individual fliers, or even bookmarks, which can be handed out to shoppers or inserted in their shopping bags.

11. Liana Vine Decorative String

Materials:

  • Construction paper (many colors)
  • Crayons or markers
  • Scissors
  • Glue, tape, or staples
  • A long piece of green or brown yarn or string

Make a template for the kids to trace. Example: When you make leaves make sure to draw a thick stem on the top (your leaf will hang from this stem, which will be folded over). 

Cut out the leaf.

Draw the leaf veins if you wish.

Fold the leaf’s stem in half. Attach the leaf to a long string using tape, glue, or staples. Make more leaves and attach them to the string.

Make flowers, butterflies, caterpillars, snakes, and other animals for the vine.

A good way to attach butterflies to the vine is by taping, or stapling, a V-shaped pipe cleaner to the butterfly’s head as its antennae, and then twisting the pipe cleaner to attach it to the vine.

Draw details on your flowers and animals, and attach them to the string with tape, glue, staples or pipe cleaners.

Hang your rainforest/summer vine across the room for a colorful decoration.

12. Earth Week Art and Project Exhibit

This will need to be started weeks before Earth Day which is April 22

Display photography, sculpture, drawings, pastels, etc., as well as crafts, toys, and nature projects made by the children. Everything should be focused on the environment and objects can be made from recycled materials.

Set up your exhibit and hold a family event after school. You can also invite school classrooms to walk through and view the exhibit.

Serve refreshments with an Earth theme.

13. Classroom Rainforest Project

One Michigan 2nd-grade celebration of Earth Day became a sustained commitment to caring for a rainforest.

To better understand tropical plants and their connections with society, the students did research in small groups, then drew or constructed models of plants, transforming their classroom into a model rainforest. During their research, the children discovered they could adopt acres of the real rainforest to help preserve it and calculated how much money they needed to do this.

The students maintained their obligation to the environment in their fund-raising efforts. They created and presented, to parents and other classes, a program on dangers facing rain forests. They charged each person who attended an empty soda can, which they recycled for money to purchase sections of rainforest.

As a follow-up to their presentation, the students wrote, illustrated, and bound their own storybooks about rain forests. They donated the books to local doctors’ offices, schools, and libraries so that the community could continue to learn about this important resource.

14. Pennies for Pandas, Pumas, Pelicans, Etc. 

To one 2nd-grade class, the study of endangered animals was a vague subject. They grasped the definitions of words like threatened and extinct, but it was difficult to imagine animals that were so familiar to them, like pandas simply not existing. A student-led fund-raising project in support of endangered animals brought the issue into focus.

The students prepared by reading a play about rainforest animals.

They worked cooperatively to chart information about a variety of endangered animals and make illustrated books about each one.

The children then pulled key ideas from what they’d learned and created flyers that they distributed to households near the school. In the flyers, the students informed their neighbors about issues facing animals and asked them to contribute aluminum cans and pennies, which the students counted and used to adopt two animals from the local zoo.

The children also organized a school-wide contest to see which class could contribute the most pennies.

In celebration of the successful fund-raising drive, the students performed the play about rainforest animals for parents and fellow students. Even before the curtain rose, they knew they were already playing one of the most important roles of their lives: caretaker of the Earth.

15. Look for Different Color and Shapes of Mushrooms

Without touching the mushrooms, tell the kids to draw a picture in their journals.

Make a Nature Discovery Corner in Your Classroom

Have students bring in their discoveries. Ask them to write a short description of what they found.

16. Visit a Forest Preserve, Nature Center or State Park

Ask the park ranger or manager to meet with the kids. Ask the ranger to discuss his/her job, and what the special satisfaction in the job is. You might also ask the ranger to lead the students through a walk in the woods. If you can’t go on a field trip invite the park ranger to your site.

17. Write Letters

Write letters to members of Congress to support environmental legislation.

18. Raise Money

Raise money through various contests to support conservation causes.

19. Present Environmental Information

High school and middle school students can present environmental information to middle and elementary schools.

20. Volunteer

Volunteer locally to do habitat preservation, adopt a roadway or beach to remove litter or recycle wastes in the community. 

21. Plan a Field Trip

Visit a sewage treatment plant, a sanitary landfill, a zoo, an arboretum, or a nature center.

22. Guest Speaker

Invite a director or president of local environmental organizations to your program. Learn what the organization does as well as finding out why these people volunteer their time and how they became interested in the environment.

23. Conduct an Interview

Interview local businesses to find out about economic conflicts associated with environmental issues.

Planet Earth Activities for Preschoolers and Older Kids Too

A collection of planet earth activities for preschoolers. A great way to get kids involved and interested in caring for planet earth.

With the planet Earth activities for preschoolers and older kids, you will find this section combines a bit of craft and exercise together with a lot of learning. There is so much fun here with reading, hiking, and making play dough that all the kids will be happy no matter which activity you choose. Stretch it out, and you can choose more than one of these exciting activities.

24. Read The Lorax by Dr. Seuss

It’s much more than a children’s book, it’s a great lesson for all ages. (Beside the movie, there is also a 25-minute video)

The Lorax appears and speaks for the trees since they have no voice of their own. The Lorax warns of the dangers of raping the land for the Truffula Trees, but the Once-ler is so greedy, he pays him no heed. As you can guess, the land soon dies, and all that is left is destruction and pollution. The Lorax sadly flies off, never to be seen there again. As it should be, the story ends with hope. He entrusts to you a seed, the very last seed, to start again for the Truffula Trees.

25. Discuss the Importance of Trees for People and Animals

List all the ways the forest is helpful:

  • The trees hold the water in the soil with their roots.
  • The forest keeps the surrounding area cool with its shade.
  • The forest provides homes for many animals.
  • Forests clean and enrich the air we breathe. Their leaves and needles take in carbon dioxide and give out oxygen through the tree’s bark. 

The following activities can be done as they are, or you can incorporate them into The Lorax theme. 

26. Make a Mural

Using trees, etc. have the kids make a mural with The Lorax theme.

27. Make Environmental Collages

Materials:

  • Magazines
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Construction paper

Allow the children to cut out magazine pictures of trees, flowers, birds, sun, clouds, etc. They then glue them on sheets of construction paper to make a collage about their environment. Post collages on the wall and talk about the world they live in and how we can help take care of the trees and birds.

28. Do Tree Rubbings

Materials:

  • Pieces of paper
  • Crayons without labels

Give children a piece of paper and a large crayon with the paper off. Show them how to use the crayon sideways to make a rubbing.

29. Make a Tree

Materials:

  • Empty toilet paper roll
  • Green construction paper
  • Tape
  • Glue
  • Crayons or paint

Give each child an empty toilet paper roll to use as a tree trunk. Tracing their hands, help each child make several hand shapes out of green construction paper for palm fronds (leaves). 

Tape the leaves to the inside of the top of their tree trunks. 

Before they glue the leaves on–they can color or paint the tubes.

30. Make Play Dough

Make the play dough different colors of the earth. The children can make trees, worms, and flower shapes.

31. Make Plaster Casts of Animal Tracks

Make plaster casts of animal tracks you have seen in the woods. They can be found on trails, near feeding sites, and water sources. The kids can identify what the animal is and then they can research the animal to find out where it lives, what it eats, its size, and how many offspring it has. They can also explore what the animal’s relationship is to other living things in the woods.

32. Wood Walker Diaries

Ask the kids to keep a journal of a wooded area that is close to the school or home. Have them visit the area regularly to note changes. They might include drawings or photographs of what they see.

33. Look for Animal and Bird Homes While on a Walk

Look for nests, burrows in the ground, hiding places in trees, or drilled holes in a tree which usually means a woodpecker is nearby.

34. During a Walk in the Woods

Ask the kids to find as many tree seeds as they can. The best time to do this is in the spring or fall.

Why do some trees drop their seeds in the spring and some in the fall? It is a dormancy issue.

Those that drop in the spring do not require cold to germinate.

Those that drop their seeds later in the summer or fall require a cold dormancy period for them to germinate.

Some seeds to look for are acorns, walnuts, hickory nuts, and some maple seeds, and pine cones.

35. Springtime Walk in the Woods

Take the kids for a walk in the woods and mark off a 3- foot by 3-foot area with string. Go back and visit the area periodically and observe the changes in the area and what you see growing.  You could select two or three different places, each having a different habitat such as a dead log, leaf litter, bare ground, an area in the sun, an area in the shade, or a spot along a stream.

36. Discover Ways Living Creatures Camouflage Themselves in the Woods

Discuss color, patterns, and shapes that you find in the woods and how they can protect creatures from harm. For instance, an insect on a branch is hardly noticeable. A frog along a stream edge is hard to see. What others can you come up with? It’s like a game of I Spy. What do you think living creatures do in the winter to protect themselves?

37. Talk About How Seeds Can Move From, Place to Place

Some seeds stick to our clothing or animals’ fur, some fly like helicopter blades, and others spread through bird and animal droppings. Have the students find and record as many seeds as they can in their journal.

38. Set Up an Experiment with Several Different Tree Seeds

In this experiment, the kids will be determining which seeds need a cold treatment to germinate. You will need two seeds of each tree. Plant each seed in a different pot. Place half the pots in the windowsill and the other half in a refrigerator for 1-3 months. Then take the pots out of the refrigerator and water them well. Compare them with the ones that are on the windowsill. This process is called stratification where seeds are subjected to a specified amount of cold to overcome seed dormancy.

39. Collect Various Leaves and Bark Samples

Have the students feel the different leaves and barks; compare and describe each one.

40. Nature/Forest Scavenger Hunt

Make a scavenger hunt list, consider a picture list for younger kids 

Some scavenger hunt ideas: a feather, small stone, acorn, various leaves in your area, small twig or stick, dead bug, worm, pieces of grass, cloverleaf and any other ideas you can come up with.

41. Parachute with Leaves Falling

Place a lot of pre-cut leaves on a parachute. Put on some music and play games while letting the leaves gently fall.

42. Help the Birds

Lend a helping hand to the birds by supplying them with simple nesting materials.

All you need to do is fill a mesh bag (like the kind onions are packaged in) or a berry basket. Use dried grass, short lengths of yarn and string, stuffing from old furniture or a feather pillow you can also use some hair from brushes.

Loop the strands outside of the mesh or basket so the birds can grab them.

Hang the bag in a location that the birds can safely access; watch the birds collect and you can hunt to see if you can find one of your nests.

43. Read Outside

If the weather is nice, allow the kids to read a book under a tree. Have a picnic or enjoy some snacks while enjoying story time.

44. Listen to the Sounds

Get a Sounds of the Rainforest or woodsy and animal-sounds CD to play while enjoying earth day activities and crafts; it will be soothing for the kids (and you) as well as enriching.

45. Adopt a Tree

Find a special tree on your playground/yard and explain that you can adopt that tree as your pet plant. Have a contest to name the tree. (This is a great way to use a graph)

Take photos of your tree and encourage the children to draw pictures of it during different seasons.

Ask children to hug your tree. What does it feel like? What does it smell like? Can you hear your tree?

Measure the tree.

Read books, have picnics, or sing songs under your tree.

46. Plant a Tree or Garden

Plant and care for a garden, flowers, or small tree. Check out the official Arbor Day site for details on obtaining a free tree.

It’s important that you contain your plants; many vegetables and flowers grow well in either indoor or outdoor pots. 

Once your plot or pots are chosen, help children begin researching what to plant. For speedier and more certain results, plant seedlings instead of seeds, though children will miss out on the excitement of seeing that first sprout peeking through the soil.

With container gardening you control the soil and drainage; you can avoid most garden pests.

In 3 to 5-gallon pots, you can grow beans, carrots, peppers, tomatoes, corn, broccoli, cabbage, kale, leeks, and even melons.

Pots as small as 4 to 6-inches are fine for growing peas (choose shorter peas, ones that grow to about a foot), lettuce, spinach, and Swiss chard.

Choose medium size pots for beets, eggplant and cherry tomatoes. Of course, all your pots will need plenty of sun and water.

If you can’t dig up a plot for a garden, use a small swimming pool. Poke holes in the pool for drainage, add soil and plant the garden just as you would above.

*Idea* Children often want to plant seeds left over from fruits (peach pits, apple seeds, watermelon seeds). If your climate is conducive and you have space, try planting some peach pits in a corner of the yard. Within about three years, some tasty fruit may appear.

*Another Great Idea* Grow some edible plants and add them to soups, salads, beverages, and desserts. The following are fine to eat: Peonies, pansies, nasturtiums, dandelions, daylilies, squash flowers, elderflowers, carnations, violets, marigolds, and sunflowers. Do not eat wisteria, holly, bird of paradise, hydrangea, oleander, poinsettia or philodendron.

47. Science of Horticulture

Grow different types of beans in wet cotton and plastic bags; tape the baggies to a window and some in a closet. Observe and photograph (or draw) the sprouting once a week.

Discuss differences in growth patterns and what plants need to grow. Measure and graph plant heights.

Plant a garden and eat harvested vegetables. (See above ideas)

Discuss what animals and plants need for growing well.

48. Plant a Garden to Attract Butterflies

Help the children research which plants are the best for attracting butterflies. The following is a short list to get you started with some of the plants you can use:

  • Aster
  • Blanket Flower
  • Day-lily
  • Phlox
  • Sunflower                                                          
  • Verbena
  • Black-eyed Susan
  • Butterfly Bush
  • Milkweed

49. Gardening and Community Service

The following is a list of ways you can preserve your surroundings while teaching the kids generosity and they will also learn how to work as a team in accomplishing the same goals.

  • Improve the school grounds and plant trees or wildflowers.
  • Plant produce. Donate the harvest to a local food bank.
  • Plant seeds and then sell the flowers or plants; donate the proceeds to a local organization in need.
  • Form a litter patrol on school or park grounds.
  • Put on a play at your school, a fair, or festival about local environmental issues.

50. Create a Worm Farm and Learn How Worms Work in the Garden

Materials:

  • Plastic soda bottle
  • Black construction paper
  • Tape
  • Gravel or stones (This is a great way to get small rocks out of the yard)
  • Sand
  • Dirt
  • Water
  • Banana peel
  • Worms

Cut the top off the soda bottle and tape the edge.

Pour in 2-inches of gravel or stones.

Alternate the sand and dirt in layers of 2-inches each. (Lightly spray the dirt with water)

Put a few banana peels in the middle for worm food.

Continue with the layers until the bottle is full.

Add the worms and tape the top back on to the bottle. Make several small holes throughout the top for ventilation.

Tape the construction paper around the bottle and leave for a day or two. When you take the paper off, you will see the tunnels the worms have made, and the layers will have shifted and mixed. This is a great way to learn how worms work in the garden. Make sure you check your bottle ecosystems every day; moisten the soil; add more moistened food to the top layer if necessary.

You can also observe your ecosystems and record your observations, draw a picture or take a digital photograph of your ecosystems.

51. Creating a Worm Farm for Preschoolers

Go to bait and tackle store and buy bait worms. Dump them into two large tubs of dirt and let the children observe them as they dig. The children can use their hands to dig up the worms. Provide the children with a variety of plastic birds for pretend feeding.

Take the worms outside and put them in the garden at the end of the day. Have a box of baby wipes available for hand washing.

52. Create a Wood Eco-System

Place some soil in the bottom of an aquarium.

Place a layer of dead leaves on the top.

Place a dead, rotten log on top of the leaves.

Watch what happens. Does anything begin to grow out of the soil or emerge from the log? 

53. Capture the Moment

When children find a frog, roly-poly bugs, moths, or an anthill, offer a magnifying glass or microscope for looking very closely.

If they notice birds building a nest, provide binoculars and help them make regular observations to record what they see.

Compare observations over time. Ask children to predict what might happen next (baby birds?)

*Try This Idea* Turn a protected section of your program or schoolyard into a nature shelter. In the cold weather, birds, squirrels, and other small wildlife are in constant search of food, fresh water, and safe shelter.

*Another Great Idea* Set up a bird feeder, bird bath, or a birdhouse where you and the children will be able to quietly observe. They’ll enjoy watching different animals seek the food and water and your birdhouse will be there when needed.

*Excellent Idea* If you look around you when out walking keep an eye out for pretty flowers you can dry, colorful rocks, odd shaped pieces of wood or other interesting objects. Keep them in a collection box and before you know it you will have wonderful things to use in future craft projects. 

Recycling Project Ideas for Kids

A collection of recycling projects for kids. These recycling ideas for kids are a great way to get kids involved in the caring of the environment.

With these recycling project ideas for kids, you will discover more ways they can help the community to be aware of ways to keep their surroundings healthy. They can plan group recycling efforts and even volunteer around the town. Not only are the kids learning about a clean environment, but they are also exercising their social skills, so they will know how to communicate properly in their future.

54. Plan a Program Recycling Effort

 Contact an agency to see if it would be willing to remove your items for recycling. Find out how they must be sorted and stored.

Collect and recycle everything you can.

Donate the proceeds if you turn recycled items in for cash.

Contact for publicity; perhaps others will join the recycling effort!

55. Waste Watchers

Introduce recycling to your school by having kids set up a recycling bin for paper. Ask school officials to set up bins in the cafeteria for plastic, aluminum, and glass. Students can help educate their schoolmates about recycling by designing posters that describe what can and cannot be placed in each recycling bin.

56. Recycle Old Shoes

Have you ever thrown out a pair of worn-out athletic shoes? Did you know that it takes about 1,000 years for those sneakers to biodegrade? Wondering what to do with the ones you’ve already got? Recycle them!

Every year, millions of pairs of athletic shoes are thrown away, not only wasting landfill space but wasting tons of reusable material. Since 1993 Nike has been running a program called Reuse-a-Shoe. It’s part of the “Let Me Play” campaign, one of Nike’s longest-running environmental and community programs, where worn-out athletic shoes of any brand are collected, processed and recycled into material used in sport surfaces like basketball courts, tennis courts, athletic fields, running tracks and playgrounds for young people around the world.

To keep recycling equipment running smoothly, there are a few guidelines:

  • Athletic shoes only (any brand)
  • No shoes containing metal
  • No cleats or dress shoes
  • No wet or damp shoes

Put out notices and containers and start collecting!

57. Volunteer

Volunteer at a recycling center or spend time at a local elementary school, facilitating projects made from recycled materials. Volunteer time setting up a litter campaign or collection for rain-forest, etc. with elementary school programs.

Green Week Ideas for Schools and Kids

Although the following ideas are for Green Week, they should also be practiced every day of the year. Keeping the environment clean will keep it green, and everyone knows that it’s better to play on grass and breathe in the fresh air than it is to breathe in smog and play in a landfill. 

  • Ride your bike or walk to school.
  • Use last year’s school supplies.
  • Buy a canvas and cardboard binders instead of plastic.
  • Buy recycled paper.
  • Use reusable water bottles instead of plastic.
  • Use a lunch box, not paper bags.
  • Donate last year’s clothes instead of throwing them away.
  • Buy online to avoid driving.
  • Buy organic food.
  • Turn your computer off when you’re not using it.
  • Decorate your lunchbox.
  • Make your own bookmarks.
  • Organize a clothes swap with your friends.
  • Carpool to sports
  • Use refillable pens and pencils.
  • Reuse your backpack. Decorate it with cool patches.
  • Encourage teachers to print on both sides of papers.

58. Green Mapping

Pretend you are the first person to explore your home or school neighborhood. Draw a map of what you find. This idea with a Community Service/Green Bend is Green Mapping.

Green Mapping is catching on across the globe as kids and adults around the world participate in diverse and unusual mapping projects. Green Mapping looks at the community using the map as the medium.

The map could examine environmental issues or look at community resources and needs with a critical eye. Green Maps can be computer generated or hand drawn and can include poems, narrative text, photos, and background information.

Children and adults from around the world have mapped a wide variety of diverse projects.

Consider ideas such as:

  • Where are bike trails, farmers’ markets, or wildlife habitats in your town?
  • Are there good walking tours to recommend?
  • What are the cultural resources for children in your area? Are there enough?
  • Are there toxic waste sites or environmental hazards in your community?
  • Are there rivers or streams that are at risk in your area?
  • Where are the green spaces in your community? Should there be more?
  • What is youth-friendly in your neighborhood?
  • What does your neighborhood need?

Going Green

If you’re planning to go green, then you might as well go all the way by learning and practicing what you should do indoors as well as out. Sometimes something as simple as a light bulb can make all the difference, that’s why this section is just as important as all the rest.

59. Replace Your Light Bulbs

Replace standard incandescent light bulbs with compact fluorescent light bulbs. Compact Fluorescent Light bulbs (CFLs) use 66% less energy than a standard incandescent bulb and last up to 10 times longer. Replacing a 100-watt incandescent bulb with a 32-watt CFL can save $30 in energy costs over the life of the bulb.

60. Turn Off the Lights

Turn off the lights when you leave the room. There is no need to burn the electricity in an empty room.

61. Choose Energy Efficient Appliances

According to the Energy Star site, if just one in ten homes used energy-efficient appliances, it would be equivalent to planting 1.7 million new acres of trees.

62. Wash Your Clothes in Cold Water

Did you know that washing your clothes in hot water uses more energy and will cost you more than if you wash your clothes in cold water?

63. Adjust the Thermostat on Your Hot Water Tank

Turn the thermostat of your hot water tank down. Turn down the thermostat in cold weather and keep it higher in warm weather. Each degree below 20°C (68°F) during colder weather saves 3%-5% more heating energy while keeping your thermostat at 78°F in warmer weather will save you energy and money. A programmable thermostat will make these temperature changes for you automatically.

64. Use Your Car Less

Use mass transit and bicycles as much as possible. Walk, bike, carpool or take public transit when you can.

65. Compost

You can do this by using an outdoor compost bin.

66. Check Your Filters

Clean or replace the filters on your furnace and air conditioner.

67. Buy Local and Organic

Buy local or organic food when and where it’s possible.

68. Wrap Your Water Heater

Wrap your water heater in an insulated blanket.

69. Use a Clothesline

Use a clothesline instead of a dryer whenever possible.

70. Buy Fresh

Buy fresh foods instead of frozen.

71. Clean Green

Stop buying household cleaners that are potentially toxic to both you and the environment. Buy environmentally-friendly products. Use biodegradable dishwashing liquid, laundry soap powder, etc.

72. Drink Tap Water

Drink tap water (filtered if necessary) rather than buying bottled water.

73. Conserve Water

Turn the tap off while brushing your teeth.

74. Unplug Things You’re Not Using

Unplug seldom-used appliances and chargers for phones, cameras, etc., when you’re not using them.

75. Seal Leaks and Drafts

Seal air leaks and drafts around doors and windows with weather-stripping.

76. Switch from Disposable to Reusable Products

Reuse food and beverage containers, cups, plates, writing pens, razors, diapers, towels, shopping bags, etc.

77. Check Your Roof

Make sure your roof is well-insulated.

78. Dispose of Properly

Dispose of hazardous material properly.

Go Green for the Holidays

Even during the holidays, it’s important to remember the earth. There are many ways you can practice keeping it green. You may have never thought something as simple as the wrapping paper you use or the gift you give could make a difference, but it does, so get the kids involved in the classroom and at home with some of the following activities. 

79. Make Memories 

Give experiences instead of stuff; give some tickets to a show, a ball game, or a scenic train ride instead of dust-collecting knickknacks.

Tailor the gift to the recipient; a club or museum memberships, craft or hobby lessons, IOU for a home-cooked meal, an afternoon of gardening help, free babysitting, and so on.

80. Save Your Energy

If you’re shopping downtown take public transportation. Take your own shopping bags while you’re at it.

81. Use the Right Lights

Using LED Christmas lights instead of power-sucking regular lights will dramatically slash the energy bill. Put all your lights on a timer so they shine only when it’s dark.

82. Go Natural

String together plain popcorn and fresh cranberries into long, colorful swags to hang on the tree,  on the mantelpiece, or in the windows. After the holidays you can hang the strings outside for the birds to enjoy. Make these as a program activity. You can decorate the classroom before the kids take them home.

83. Go Local

Seek out regionally produced, one-of-a-kind gifts. Good sources include church fairs, craft shows, local boutiques, and flea markets.

84. Re-gift

Here’s your official permission to pass along that present you can’t use but maybe Uncle Bob can.

85. Reuse

Turn old holiday cards into gift tags and colorful paper chains.

86. Recycle

Why spend money on commercial gift wrap? Calendar pages, kid’s school paintings, the comics section of the newspaper all make fun and fabulous wrapping paper alternatives. Choose paper or cloth ribbon, or colored twine instead of plastic ribbon.

87. Reduce

Instead of adding bulk to the landfill, choose gifts that come with a minimum of product packaging, and try to find packaging that’s 100 percent recyclable.

88. Simplify

Stop the madness and remember what the holidays are really about; family and friends. Enjoy the simple pleasures such as a shared meal.

Green Craft Ideas for Preschoolers and the Family During the Holidays

Get the kids together and gather your extended family to join in the fun of making some of these green craft ideas. You probably never think about ways other than a bird feeder to keep your feathered friends happy, but with these great ideas, you will be teaching the kids a few things about the earth while creating a new feast for the birds. Your preschoolers will have a great time making Cheerio Chains while your older kids have fun creating rustic photo ornaments out of last year’s Christmas tree. 

89. Cheerio Chains

Materials:

  • Cheerios
  • Yarn
  • Tape

Wrap some tape on one end of a long length of yarn. Tie a knot with a Cheerio on it at the other end. String the chain by sliding a Cheerio over the tape and dropping it to the bottom. Invite children to help you until the entire chain is strung. Drape these chains around outside tree for birds/animals to enjoy.

90. Orange Slices

Materials:

  • Orange slices
  • A plastic straw
  • Raffia or ribbon

Poke a hole with a plastic straw at the top of each orange slice. Thread with raffia or ribbon and tie each slice to a branch.

91. Cut Shapes Out of Stale Bread

Materials:

  • Stale bread
  • Cookie cutters
  • Peanut butter
  • Birdseed
  • Plastic knife
  • Plastic straw
  • Raffia or yarn

Using the cookie cutters, allow the kids to cut shapes out of the bread. 

Spread peanut butter on the bread with a plastic knife and then sprinkle on some bird seed. 

Poke a hole at the top with a plastic straw. Thread the hole with raffia or yarn. 

Decorate the outdoor bushes and low trees branches with these yummy decorations for the birds to enjoy.

92. Recycle an Old Christmas Tree into Rustic Photo Ornaments

Materials:

  • Circular wood slices, about 1-inch thick, 2-inches wide and 3-inches tall (from wood trunk)
  • Color copies of your favorite photographs
  • Eye Hooks
  • Chenille tie or ribbon
  • Scissors
  • Decoupage medium or diluted white glue
  • A pen or a rubber stamp

Before beginning, cut all circular wooden slices and make color copies of photographs.

Use scissors to cut photograph in a circular (or oval) shape to fit wooden slice. Cut photo a little smaller than the slice so that a small wooden border surrounds the photo.

Apply decoupage medium or glue to the back of the photograph. Adhere to the wooden surface.

Coat the entire top surface including the photograph with decoupage medium. Allow drying.

Apply several more coats of decoupage medium, allowing the medium to dry thoroughly between coats.

Stamp or write the year of the photograph on the back of the wooden ornament.

Add tie or ribbon through eye hook to hang the ornament.

When serving the snack, the kids can take a scoop from each bag or they can combine and mix the ingredients in a large bowl.

After the kids scoop out their trash, give them an ice cream cone to replicate a trash can to eat out of.

It’s nice that there is no trash to clean up when the children have finished eating.

Once it has cooled, allow the children to add jelly beans to their nests.

*Idea* You can replace the jelly beans with melon balls if you would like.

Earth Day Group Games

Everyone loves to play games and a bit of competition shouldn’t be left off the schedule for the day, so why not plan some of these fun earth day group games that can be enjoyed by all ages, young and old? You can allow the group to play the games, maybe win a prize or two, ones that go with the theme of course, and when they’re finished, you can have a group discussion of what they learned while playing the games.

103. Rainforest Obstacle Course

Set up an outdoor obstacle course using branches, monkey bars, ropes, etc.

Allow the children to climb over, under, and around the branches. They can have fun climbing across the monkey bars while making the sounds of a monkey, and they will have a great time swinging from the rope as if it were a vine.

This game can be played individually or as a team.

*Great Idea* Using an electronic device, play the soothing sounds of the rainforest to include animals, nature, and music while the kids run through the course.

104. Litter Sweep Relay Game

Divide the kids into two teams and give each team a broom and a small pile of dry trash such as soda cans, paper, small plastic bottles, etc.

On the signal, the first person on each team sweeps the trash to a certain point and back.

The next team member then takes over, and so on until all have had a turn.

The first team finished wins the game.

If a player loses any trash, they must sweep it back and pick it up.

105. Endangered Animal Charades

Young children are often surprised to learn that their favorite animals from books and in zoos are not prevalent in the wild. In this activity, children become aware of the diversity of endangered species through a game.

Materials and Preparations:

  • Prepare a list of animals that are endangered (with or without pictures) and cut the list apart. Fold the slips of paper and put them into a container for children to draw from. Examples include Alligator, Whale, Sheep, Elephant, Hummingbird, Shark, Eagle, Wolf, Panda, Tiger Rattlesnake, Grasshopper, Fly, Polar Bear, Rhino, Gorilla, turtle, Snail, Panther, butterfly, Dolphin, Rabbit, Frog, and Iguana.
  • First-discuss the term endangered species and what students know about it. What do they believe causes animals to become extinct? Point out that many kinds of animals they find interesting are in danger of disappearing.

How to Play:

Children will pretend to be an endangered species and have their classmates try to guess what these animals are. As in the formal game of charades, students are not permitted to talk, but they may pantomime the behaviors of the animals.

If the group is large, form two teams and have individual students pantomime as their team members guess. If they cannot guess the name of the animal, the other team may try.

After the game, talk about the animals they acted out and why some of them are endangered. What animals on the endangered list surprised the students?

106. Garbage Ball

Materials and Preparations:

  • Anything that can be thrown and not hurt anyone i.e. balls, wads of paper, sock balls, rubber chickens, etc.
  • Something to use as a center line 
  • Music or a whistle to use as a signal
  • Divide the kids up into two equal teams
  • Place an equal number of items to be thrown on each side

At the signal, each team throws whatever it can get their hands on from their side of the line to the other side.

Players continue to throw until the signal sounds at which time they should stop.

The winning team is the side with the least amount of garbage on its side.

To play more rounds divide the garbage evenly again and continue. 

*Challenge* Add interest by having the losing team pick up all garbage or have both teams pick up garbage. The losing team must do what the winning teams tell them to do such as accomplish a certain number of push-ups, sit-ups, etc.

Earth Day Music Lessons

Music is great for everyone and every occasion; it sets the mood and keeps people involved in the activities. Although some of the following earth day music lesson ideas might seem to be corny for the older kids, they can help the little ones make instruments and teach them how to use them. Before it’s over you will probably have the older kids making their own instruments too!

107. Start a Green Band

Make instruments from recycled materials. Once the instruments are made there are many things you can do with them. The Green Band can have fun marching and playing the instruments and if possible, create an Earth Day Parade and let them participate using the instruments they made.

They can put on a show for a school assembly, a few of the classrooms and/or a parents’ night. You can also take the group on the road and entertain at an assisted living facility or at another community group.

No matter what you choose to do with the instruments, be sure and take some time to show the children how to play them. Play along with a piece of music; start out by playing some familiar songs they can play their instruments. You might even consider a sing-along with the instruments. Encourage the children to listen for the beat of the song and match their strokes to the tempo of the music.

Give the children a choice before they choose their final instrument; play some lively music and let them play along for a while until they find the one that’s just right for them. You might even want to choose an instrument for yourself and join in the Green Band with the kids!

This is a great outdoor project that you can consider doing under a tree.

Songs for Earth Day Music

After the instruments are made and the kids have picked their favorites, you will need some music. The following is a short list of songs for earth day music to get you started. Even if you choose not to make instruments you will need some tunes, so go ahead and pick some of the favorites.

108. Yucky, Yucky, Poo

If you see a piece of litter pick it up

111. Litter is Garbage

(The tune of The Wheels on the Bus)
